BLUE HESPER PALM OF THE HIGHLANDS (Brahea super-silver)

A new species still pending description

Although this species was introduced by one of the world’s leading seed explorers and distributors a little over a decade ago, it still lacks a formal botanical description. However, there does not seem to be any doubt about its enormous potential as an ornamental palm. It is perhaps the best among the hesper palms, as it is thornless like B nitida, has beautiful silver leaves matched only by those of B armata, is quite hardy and drought-tolerant, and growths relatively quick.
