(Miniature Chusan palm)
Originating from China, Japan
An extremely hardy palm with a single trunk covered in hessian-like fibrous sheathes and a compact crown of stiff, upright leaves on stout petioles (leaf stems). The new leaves are margined with silver/white, woolly down. T. wagnerianus is a slower growing though more wind tolerant palm than Trachycarpus fortunei and is therefore ideal for exposed positions.
Grow in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in sun/shade.
