For years, this wonderful palm masqueraded as Trachycarpus wagnerianus, but, as it turned out, it was botanically described from a cultivated specimen (a no-no) and never known from the wild. This is simply a seed cultivar of Trachycarpus fortunei, albeit a truly fine one. In addition to proving very winter hardy, it makes a 20' tall trunk exactly like typical Trachycarpus fortunei, except the stiff round leaves are stunningly beautiful and much shorter...18" diameter compared to 33" diameter for typical Trachycarpus fortunei.
