Washingtonia robusta (Mexican Fan Palm) as a coloniser in an artificial wetland at Albury, New South Wales

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Washingtonia robusta (Mexican Fan palm) is endemic to the semi-arid zone of California and northern Mexico. Dispersed globally by the horticultural trade, the species has demonstrated its ability to successfully invade disturbed areas and urban landscapes in warm temperate climates. Once established, the plant is extremely hardy. This paper presents the first documented instance of the successful establishment and growth of Washingtonia robusta in a pond in continually flooded wetlands at Albury, the first record of it naturalising in New South Wales
