Chamaerops humilis

Chamaerops humilis Mediterranean palm

Flowers from March to May 
I have never seen these plants so big before and growing like trees in the wild. These were at least 2 metres tall. I have been told that they can grow to 3 metres and survive for 500 years if they don't suffer in a fire which these obviously haven't. These, therefore, must be several hundred years old.
