Trachycarpus wagnerianusFrom £24.95
Wagners fan palm , a beautiful compact Trachycarpus that is unaffected by the UK’s buffeting winds and always looks perfection.
Hardy in most parts of the UK, very easy to grow and quickly grows into a beautiful palm tree that can be left to fend for itself in all but the most severe of winters.
Possibly the most cold hardy Trachycarpus.
The most beautiful and sought after of the genus with its slight blue leaf colouration contrasted by a stunning white underside. Somewhat difficult to grow but well worth the effort.
In winter 2017/2018 in the USA , several people reported that Trachcyarpus takil was burnt to a crisp whilst princeps in the same garden remained untouched.
Trachycarpus princeps hybridFrom £19.95
Bought as Trachycarpus princeps seeds, but clearly not, these young palms display similarities to princeps, but are larger , faster growing and trouble free. This is NOT Trachycarpus nova, it can only be a hybrid between princeps and nova or fortunei.
Trachycarpus novaFrom £8.95
A wild occurring Trachycarpus growing near to Trachycarpus princeps in China.Botanically very close to fortunei.
Probably the fastest growing of the Trachycarpus family , resembling Trachycarpus martianus when larger.
Seems slightly less cold hardy than fortunei, but recovers extremely rapidly.
Photos are of a plant in habitat and a beauty in Steve Winstanleys garden to show how they grow in the UK.
Trachycarpus Naini TalFrom £8.95
A fabulous Trachycarpus, seemingly the cold hardiest and most robust form of fortunei, that survives the most extreme of cold.
Normally somewhat vigorous, it grows into a wonderful palm suited to most parts of the UK. Our larger size is grown from same batch of seeds as the sp khumoan sold by a competitor although in our opinion it is a naini tal.
