Brahea edulis, commonly known as the Guadalupe palm or the Guadalupe fan palm, is a species of palm tree native to Guadalupe Island off the west coast of Baja California in Mexico. Here's a description of the plant:

Appearance: It is a striking palm tree with a single, stout trunk that can grow up to 15 meters (49 feet) tall, though typically around 10 meters (33 feet) in cultivation. The trunk is topped with a dense crown of large, fan-shaped leaves.

Leaves: The leaves are palmate, meaning they radiate from a central point like the fingers of a hand. They are typically bluish-green or grayish-green in color and can reach lengths of up to 1.5 meters (5 feet). The leaf petioles are armed with sharp, curved spines, which can be dangerous if not handled carefully.

Flowers and Fruit: Brahea edulis produces small, cream-colored flowers that grow in clusters on long stalks extending beyond the crown of leaves. The flowers are followed by small, round fruits that ripen to a dark purplish-black color. However, fruit production is relatively rare in cultivation.

Habitat: In its natural habitat on Guadalupe Island, Brahea edulis grows in rocky, coastal areas and can tolerate a range of soil types. It is adapted to the island's Mediterranean climate, characterized by mild, wet winters and warm, dry summers.

Cultural Significance: The Guadalupe palm is valued for its ornamental beauty and is commonly cultivated in temperate regions worldwide as a landscaping plant. It is relatively cold-hardy compared to many other palm species and can tolerate temperatures down to around -6°C (20°F) for short periods.
