Palms

An exotic garden cannot exist without palm trees. The easiest one is Trachycarpus fortunei. It thrives in relatively cool summers, but needs some protection during extreme frosts with hessian or straw. Good draining soil is important. A good Trachy has stiff leaves, there are however many inferior plants in the trade. Trachycarpus princeps with blueish leaves is a must-have, but less hardy than T. fortunei. The hardiest feather leaved palm is Jubaea chilensis, in zone 8 climates and lower this beauty needs shelter from cold weather in winter; it can survive -12°C for a short period. Some hardy Butia's like B. eriospatha and B. capitata can be grown succesfully in mild climates (zone 8b and higher).

Butia capitata

Jelly palm

Moderate leaf loss
Butia capitata
  • Solitary
  • Hardy to -10 °C
This palm will tolerate -12oC for limited amount of time. Needs very good winter protection. May be grown with care outside. Sometimes is damaged at the growth point and can then die off. The best thing is to protect it with electrical thawing wire or christmas lights. In the mild winter of 2000/2001 the B. capitata in our garden lost it's growth point, but in august new growth appeared! Our wet conditions damaged it badly, though. The next winter was fatal. Grows rather fast.

Trachycarpus fortunei

Chusan windmill palm

Moderate leaf loss
Trachycarpus fortunei
  • Solitary
  • Hardy to -15 °C
The only palm that grows well in our climate and tolerates our winters very well. It's nearly always sufficient to simply loosely pack it (particularly the growth point) in the winter. Different forms may be found in the trade. I prefer the so called 'Nanking'-variety with flat and tight leaves. This palm should be planted in every exotic garden! Prices are average and subject to plantquality and containersize.
