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.
