Trachycarpus fortunei – these magnificent palms have to be seen to be believed! They’ve got the Wow Factor! Available in a range of sizes they will fit perfectly in your courtyard or garden space. Simply buy the height you need as they are slow growing. The hardiest palm available, they can withstand temperatures down to an extreme -18 degrees centigrade! Also known as the Chusan Palm the Fortunei provides an instant sub-tropical feel to any space. With the un-branched, single stemmed hairy trunk and large fan-shaped dark green leaves and early summer panicles of yellow flowers followed by blue-black fruit in the autumn. Plant in well-drained, fertile soil in full sun or dappled shade. The large leaves can get damaged in very exposed gardens, but will re-grow fresh leaves the following season. In really exposed gardens use Trachycarpus Wagnerianus. Feed with a quality fertiliser like the Trevena Cross slow release fertiliser and position in a garden or large tubs and pots.
