I bought this for 10 quid from Asda as I felt it was very different from my others, what do you think? It has 360 degree leaves and unusually large dark brown spines for a small Chamaerops a lot larger than my other humilis spines.
Very unusual leaves. My Cerifera has huge thorns on it like those. Could it be a Cerifera?

Looks like a cerifera to me as well.
I had wondered if it was a cerifera as it has a slight blue tinge and the dark brown spines, if it is I have won a watch. And yes Di it does appear to be more than 360 deg. I only noticed this by chance as I walked into the store the 360 leaves are what drew my attention label said it was a humilis and I have checked since and there is not another one like it.
if you can look after it and that 360+ trait carries on,that will make a stunning addition to any collection

chamaerops can be very VERY variable so this could just be one of the many variations you can find, didnt dave have a trachycarpus that had 360 degree leaves, this looks like the same thing but for a chamaerops, just a suggestion.
