Positive palmbob On Apr 4, 2007, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

This is still quite a rare palm in cultivation, but a wonderful one for southern California.. shows some good cold and sun tolerance (better than T latisectus) and has a neat, tidy trunk of tightly woven, ornamental fiber- not the frizzy, messy fiber seen on most other Trachycarpus species. The leaves are nearly circular and deep bright green, and the petioles have a thick white wool along them. Supposedly one of the few Trachycarpus that do equally well in a tropical climate as a temperate one... though I have seen T martianus happily growing in Hawaii... From Thailand.
