Trachycarpus wagnerianus, the minature Chusan Palm

The Trachycarpus wagnerianus (common name: Miniature Chusan Palm) is without doubt the best palm for your garden. Superior in every way to Trachycarpus fortunei we believe this recent introduction from the far east will become the most popular palm tree for European gardens! Our reasons for thinking this :
  • Very tolerant to extreme cold in combination with humidity
  • Small and stiff leaves, more suitable for small gardens
  • Due to the shape (bonsai like) an enormous customer appeal
  • In my experience no problems keeping this palm potted in winter close to a wall
  • Great tolerance of wind, the major enemy of T. fortunei
  • The smaller, rounded and stiffer leaf cluster is less susceptible to wind damage
  • The perfect choice for coastal situations
  • Excellent root system and very tolerant of transplantation
  • The plant has a beautful, exceptionally architectural appearance. Even when small it is striking and even bonsai-like in appearance.
  • Similar in cultural requirements to Trachycarpus fortunei.
