That is gorgeous - how tall/wide does it get?

hey gg...Mediterranean fan palms can get to 15 feet tall or taller and as wide in a few decades, an average height for this bushy, usually multi-trunk palm is about 6 by 6 feet. The blue cultivar has not been in existence for very long, so there are few mature specimens of the silver-blue type. They are surprisingly cold-hardy and put on more silvery-blue in times of dry weather, low humidity and drought. Good drainage is esential, as they are not a "swamp" palm by any means.
