These are marvelous images from a place in China called “The Stone Gate”, in the habitat of the cold resistant Trachycarpus princeps – a palm species with silvery fan leaves. This video was published in 2008 by Stéphane Ringot, with the original name of “Voyage au Pays des Trachycarpus Princeps“: Trip to the land of T. princeps.
The video shows:
- The trip by boat and the walk through the forest.
- Adult, tall palms growing on the vertical cliffs, in full sun, with no soil.
- Seedlings, juveniles in the shade of the forest
- Beautiful vistas from the cliff.
Trachycarpus princeps is a new species of palm which is hardy to frost and cold conditions in Europe.
