Washingtonia filifera (California palm), W. robusta (Mexican fan palm), and Washingtonia x filabusta (hybrids between the former two species) are large fan palms native to the west coast of the United States and Mexico that are commonly cultivated as ornamental street and landscape trees in the Portland area.
