The California Fan Palm: Native to Coachella Valley
The California Fan Palm is the only palm native to the western United States and is the country’s largest native palm. The California Fan Palm is one of only eleven palms native to North America. California Fan Palms can be found naturally in the Central Coachella Valley at the Indio Hills Palms State Reserve, the Coachella Valley Preserve, as well as other Coachella Valley Locations.
Called by many names, California Fan Palms are also called Washingtonia Filifera (scientific name), Desert Fan Palm, Petticoat Palm, Cotton Palm, or California Palm. These palms are known for their hardiness, ease of growth, and life span of up to 80-250 years or more.
