Trachycarpus Fortunei

Trachycarpus Fortunei has proved to be an incredibly hardy and tolerant palm. Exceptional fan-shaped fronds are arranged around the top of a single trunk which is covered in coarse fibrous material. This gives it a truly exotic appearance, making it a perfect addition to tropical gardens. 

This eyecatching, evergreen palm forms a striking feature in a large container on the patio or terrace, where it will boast sprays of dainty light yellow flowers from early summer. Yellow to blue-black kidney-shaped fruits also emerge after flowering, maintaining this fantastic plant's interest all year round.

Trachycarpus Fortunei will grow well in most places but to keep it looking its best, try to plant the palm in a moist but well-drained soil in good sun or part shade and, most importantly, out of the wind. This variety has been in fact been grown in China and Japan for many years where the strong inner fibre of the leaves is used to make rope and sacks, amongst other items too. Therefore, an all-around must-have palm! Height: 60-180cm (2-6ft).
