Chusan Palm Seed

Trachycarpus fortuneii

£3.50

The Chusan Palm is the hardiest palm for growing in the UK. It has stout stems carrying evergreen, multi-fingered, segmented leaves with slightly frayed edges. The hairy trunk is made of old leaf bases, as with most palms. It grows in sun or semi-shade and adds a bit of exoticism and architecture to the garden. The leaves can become ragged if exposed to strong winds, so it is better to plant in a sheltered spot, but it does very well in a container.  Seedlings should only be planted outside when about 30cm tall.
