White Rock Palm
A breathtakingly beautiful, medium sized, rare fan palm with a smooth, slender trunk and dark greyish green, finely segmented leaves with white undersides. It is easy to distinguish from other Brahea as the only species without a thorny petiole. Native to western and southern Mexico, where it grows on dry limestone hills among pines and oaks at elevations between 900 and nearly 2000 m (3000 and 6600 ft.), it is well suited to temperate and warm temperate climates. It will take moderate frosts and is very tolerant of drought conditions. A superb, reliable, robust and truly unique palm that is still very rarely seen in cultivation.
