Can grow to be 100 ft (30.5 m),. Mexican Fan Palms have: A gray trunk ringed with closely set leaf scars although usually at least part of the trunks remain covered with dead leaves that hang in a thatch. The solitary trunks, about 10-12 in (25.4-30.5 cm) in diameter, bulge at the ground and become slender as they approach a crown of large palmate leaves with gracefully drooping leaflet tips.
Native to western Sonora and Baja California Sur in northwestern Mexico. Frequently it is grown as an ornamental tree.
