Genus Description Trachycarpus is a genus of 6 species of usually single-stemmed, sometimes clustering, dioecious, evergreen palms occurring in temperate and mountain forest in subtropical Asia. They are cultivated for their attractive habit; their terminal, fan-shaped leaves, palmately lobed to half their length or more; and their cup-shaped flowers, surrounded by bowl-shaped, white or brown bracts. The flowers are followed by spherical or kidney-shaped fruits. Fan palms are small enough to be grown in a restricted area, such as courtyard; they are also effective specimen trees. Trachycarpus fortunel (or windmill palm) is one of the hardiest palms in cultivation, capable of withstanding fairly severe freezes with no damage. In its native habitat, it may even receive a light winter snow cover. Hot tropical climates are not to this species’ liking, and specimens tend to be short lived in those areas. It has also proven at leaves moderately susceptible to lethal yellowing. Windmill palm is most useful for providing a tropical accent in warm temperature zones, and grows well in cool summer areas such as coastal California north to Vancouver. It is tolerant of partial shade.
Care Tips
Cultivation Grow in well-drained, fertile soil in full sun or light, dappled shade, sheltered from strong or cold, drying winds.
Pests and Diseases Leaf spots and root rot may occur on seedlings. Spider mites and scale insects can be problems under glass.
