Mexican Fan Palm
Washingtonia robusta

A Mexican Fan Palm (Washingtonia robusta) that has come up from a seed in a small crack in asphalt. It is spreading the asphalt apart as it grows.

wow those seem pretty feisty. I guess itsbecause the mature and grow faster so they dont have as much a chance to get pulled up as sabals do.

These are very strong growers as young plants. I bet if I tried to plant the seeds they wouldn't germinate and do as well as these that come up on their own. :o)
