California fan palm

One California fan palm ( Washingtonia filifera ) tree is growing in our garden. 10 years ago when planted, it had about 1 meter of height. Now it has over 10 meters. The Fan Palm has a large, gray unbranched trunk with horizontal lines and vertical fissures.
It grows numerous evergreen leaves and leaf stalks with hooked spines along the edges.

Evergreen leaves.
