Trachycarpus Fortunei

- Windmill Palm

Trachycarpus is a genus of nine species of palms native to Asia, from the Himalaya east to eastern China.
They are fan palms (Arecaceae tribe Corypheae), with the leaves with a bare petiole terminating in a rounded fan of numerous leaflets.
The leaf bases produce persistent fibres that often give the trunk a characteristic hairy appearance.
It is very popular among palm enthusiasts for its ability to withstand cold, especially in the form of damp, cool summer weather with relatively mild winter weather.
These palms often tolerate snow in their native habitats and are the hardiest trunking palms.
