Nice looking Trachycarpus but without the fuzzy stems of the more common species. This one has longer, droopier petioles and very finely divided perfectly shaped fan leaves. It's a moderate grower and does best in a Mediterranean climate (not a great palm for hot, humid environments, reportedly... yet I saw some growing in Hawaii that looked very healthy). This palm is agonizingly slow as a seedling for me in southern California, being about 3-5x slower than T fortunei and takil.

Regional...

This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Los Angeles, California
Mckinleyville, California
Reseda, California
San Leandro, California
San Marino, California
