Chinese Windmill Palm
Trachycarpus fortunei

Location: 36501 Niles Blvd.
Park: California Nursery Historical Park
District: Niles
Native to: Asia
Tree type: palm
Leaf retention: evergreen

Comments: Fan palm native to China. Possibly the most cold hardy palm available. Fans are deeply divided and the ends tend to droop. This palm species is not self cleaning and needs pruning to prevent a grass-skirt developing. Several of these palms are growing in the California Nursery Historical Park.
