The California fan palm tree, also known as the Washingtonia filifera and the California washingtonia, is one of only 11 types of palm trees that are native to the North American continent. In fact, it is the only one that is native to the western half of the continent, and it is the largest of the local varieties.

Because they grow naturally in the desert, the California fan palm is the ideal ornamental tree for California landscapes. It is hearty enough to survive hot, dry summers. They are also known to grow at elevations of 500 to 1,000 feet. Some fan palms have been seen to reach 60 feet in height, although most end up somewhere between 20 and 60 feet when fully grown.
