Trachycarpus fortunei 'Charlotte'
Charlotte Hardy Windmill Palm
Item #: 1514
Zones: 7b to 10b
Height: 360" tall
Always on the lookout for hardy palm selections, I sighted two magnificent 30' specimens of hardy windmill palms on Ridgeway Drive in Charlotte, NC, in the late 1970s. We are thrilled to make available seedlings of this particularly winter hardy strain that we named Trachycarpus fortunei 'Charlotte'. All Trachycarpus fortunei will tolerate some shade, but their growth rate will slow dramatically.
