The Windmill Palm (Trachycarpus fortunei) is a popular and cold-hardy palm tree that adds a touch of tropical flair to landscapes in cooler climates. Known for its distinctive fan-shaped leaves and textured trunk, this palm tree is both elegant and adaptable.
The Windmill Palm is a medium-sized palm tree, typically reaching heights of 25 feet, with a spread of 8 to 12 feet. It is native to central China but has become a popular ornamental plant in temperate regions worldwide. The tree has a single trunk covered in a dense, fibrous matting, which provides insulation against cold temperatures, making it one of the most cold-hardy palms available. Windmill Palms are suitable for USDA hardiness zones 8 to 11, and they can tolerate temperatures as low as 5°F (-15°C) when properly acclimated.
Windmill Palm trees feature large, fan-shaped leaves that can grow up to 3 feet in length. The leaves are divided into numerous narrow segments, giving them a graceful and delicate appearance. These leaves are arranged in a symmetrical crown at the top of the trunk, creating a striking silhouette against the sky. The foliage is evergreen, providing year-round interest and color to the landscape.
In late spring, the Windmill Palm produces small, yellow flowers on long, pendulous flower stalks that emerge from the crown of the tree. The flowers are unisexual, with male and female flowers produced on separate trees. After pollination, female trees will produce small, round fruit that turns from green to blue-black as it ripens. The fruit is not typically eaten by humans but serves as a food source for birds and other wildlife.
