Desert Fan Palm – Washingtonia filifera
The California Fan Palm (Washingtonia filifera) can be found throughout the Hollywood Skyline in California. When young, the California Fan Palm is easy to take care of and appears great indoors or outdoors. The California Fan Palm tends to retain its dead leaves on its crown giving it an appeal of a wooly coat. The California Fan Palm Tree is also known as the Desert Fan Palm, American Cotton Palm and Arizona Fan Palm. It is cold hardy to about 15-23 degrees F and can tolerate frost. The California Fan Palm is a great choice for those that would love the L.A. lifestyle in their home or office.
This California Fan Palm has been rated by the USDA suitable for hardiness zone 8, and it is known to be one of the hardiest Coryphoidiae palms available. Brief temperatures of as low as 14 °F will bring about minor damage, but they are survivable. Established palms have been known to survive to as low as 10 °F, but they will likely experience some visible damage that will take time to repair. They survive best in Mediterranean climates, but can also be found in humid areas like Eastern Australia and the Southeastern USA.
