IF SO, WE RECOMMEND THE FIRST PALM FOR YOUR COLLECTION AS THE  TRACHYCARPUS FORTUNEI CHUSAN PALM.

 

 

UK HARDY

 

AN EASY MAINTENANCE PALM THAT WILL ADD TO THE CURRENT TRENDY JUNGLE AND TROPICAL STYLE OF GARDEN   

ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR AND THE HARDIEST PALM FOR THE GARDEN. WHEN FULLY GROWN, BIG, FAN SHAPED LEAVES ATOP A SPECTACULAR HAIRY TRUNK ADDING A TROPICAL LOOK AND FEEL.

 

 

HARDY TO -15C. THE TRACHYCARPUS FORTUNEI WILL EASILY LIVE OUTSIDE IN THE UK WINTER. 

 

LIKES SUN OR SHADE.

 

THE COMMON NAME, CHUSAN PALM, REFERS TO CHUSAN ISLAND, NOW ZHOUSHAN ISLAND, WHERE ROBERT FORTUNE FIRST COLLECTED THE SPECIES THAT WAS BROUGHT BACK TO THE UK.

 

THE PALM HAS BEEN CULTIVATED IN CHINA AND JAPAN FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, GROWN FOR ITS STRONG LEAF FIBRE USED FOR MAKING ROPE AND SACKS.
