Windmill Palm

(Trachycarpus fortune)

Scientifically known as the Trachycarpus fortune, this tree typically reaches a height of 10-20 feet, but occasionally grows upwards of 40-feet. The Windmill is a very slow-growing palm, and it’s trunk is covered in hair-like fibers. Three-foot-wide fronds extend from rough-edged petioles that are approximately half a foot long. The Windmill Palm is ideal for an entryway or as a framing accent.

The Windmill is hardy enough to withstand 10-degrees F or lower, and does well in confined areas. Ideally the Windmill Palm will be grown in the relative shade and on fertile soil, however it will tolerate full-sun provided it is watered regularly.
