The Esthetic of Mexican Fan Palms

Mexican fan palms are a grand addition to any desert landscape design. Their height and canopy create an appealing, tropical view drawing the eyes up to the sky. Mexican Fan Palms grow to between 70 and 100 feet tall with a frond canopy of 12 to 15 feet. Their solitary, clumping trunk is typically two feet around and may grow in a slightly curved direction. The fronds of the Mexican Fan Palm leaves are spiky and green with an individual frond length of four to eight feet. These palms produce flowers and pollen in late spring.

California Fan Palms’ Visual Appeal

Compared to Mexican Fan Palms, California Fan Palms are the shorter, stalky species of the fan palm. California Fan Palms grow to between 49 and 66 feet tall. Their fronds create a canopy that reaches 20 to 30 feet in diameter. The trunk of the California Fan Palm is wider than many other palms, at three to four feet around. Its trunk is thick and clumping, a solitary trunk that stands sturdy to support the large canopy. The leaves of this palm variety are spiky and a grey-green color with an 8 to 12-foot frond length. Like the Mexican Fan Palm, the California Fan Palm produces white flowers and pollen in the late spring.
