COLD HARDY WINDMILL PALM
TRACHYCARPUS FORTUNEI: Chinese Windmill Palm, Chusan Palm
These are the hot ticket items! Because they are cold hardy into the teens, a wider (and more northerly) audience can reap the tropical benefits. Drought tolerant, cold tolerant and low maintenance. They will perform best in partial shade in a well draining soil.
With young Windmills:
It is important that you do not over water as roots have a tendency to rot.
Cover when the temperature falls into the 20s until they are well established.
They will become more cold tolerant with maturity.
