Windmill Palm

Trachycarpus fortunei

The Windmill palm is one of the hardiest palms in cultivation, capable of withstanding fairly severe weather with no damage. This makes it very popular in the northwest (Oregon, Washington and Canada). The Windmill is most useful for providing tropical accents and is used as a small tree along streets or avenues, planted in mass or as a tub specimen.
