This palm is a best seller in Europe. It is a small frost hardy palm with small and stiff fan leaves - only about 60 cm across. It is not known in the wild, only in cultivation, because it is compact cultivar of Trachycarpus fortunei, selected in China by Japanese horticolturists. It can take snow and frost, surviving to -15 C or -25 C, depending on local climate, man-made protection, and luck.

We started these Trachycarpus wagnerianus from seed in 2007 and 2008 and they stood in the field for more than 10 years. They have been uprooted and potted in May 2019 and now they are looking very good, all rooted, with no setback of any kind. Many have flowered and some females are even setting fruits!
