Windmill Palm (Trachycarpus fortunei)


Windmill Palm

Trachycarpus fortunei

The Windmill Palm is an extremely hardy palm and also one of the best choices for smaller landscapes in Southern California. It features a beautiful, compact crown and a slender trunk that makes it an excellent choice for planting in tighter spaces, side yards, poolside, as a patio tree, or as a standalone specimen. It can bring a tropical look into any landscape and is an especially good choice for coastal landscapes from San Diego to Santa Barbara!

The Windmill Palm growth rate is moderate, and it can grow to be a medium-sized palm that looks fantastic when planted close together in groups of three or more to create the best looking, lush tropical hedge you can find! It adds a calming effect no matter where or how it’s planted and is sure to be a valuable part of any landscape!

From China and right at home here in Southern California, Windmill Palm care is as easy as a summer breeze. It loves full sun exposure or light shade and has low to moderate watering needs once established. This palm is easy to care for, so it's ideal for palm newbies and people that don't have a green thumb! And with the proper fertilizer, such as our Super Palm Juice, you can sit back, relax, and watch it explode with growth as it helps to optimize the palm’s performance! Windmill Palms are the type of tree that can transform any landscape into a resort-style property!
