Plantsman and palm guru Hayes Jackson shared seed of this fast-growing Trachycarpus hybrid that he refers to as his "stiff leaf form." Hayes thinks it might be a Trachycarpus fortunei 'Wagnerianus' x Trachycarpus fortunei cross, but those who know for sure aren't talking. The 20' tall trunk has leaves whose tips don't become limp, as is the case with Trachycarpus fortunei. Hayes has grown this for many years in his Anniston, Alabama, garden with no damage. Having seen it in person in 2006, I can attest that it is both unique and impressive...the palm, that is.
