Firstly the 'miniature' in the name refers to the leaf size, which is slightly smaller than that of its brother the Chusan palm tree. Also known as the Trachycarpus wagnerianus, the miniature chusan palm shares many features with the Chusan palm (Trachycarpus fortunei), including a hairy trunk and tall stature.
It is one of the best options for coastal and exposed situations and is equally at home in a pot as a specimen plant or as a compact conservatory plant. In a tropical-themed planting area this palm tree works well amongst other hardy palms like the Jelly Palm (Butia capitata) and the Dwarf fan Palm (Chamaerops humilis), each adding architectural interest through their contrasting fronds.
Trachycarpus wagnerianus does best in well-drained or light soil and full sun. The miniature chusan palm will respond well to a monthly feed from mid-April to September, which helps to promote healthy, strong foliage. Very little pruning is needed for this palm tree, just a spring and autumn tidy-up of old tatty fronds.
Although its leaves may be smaller than the chusan palm, the miniature chusan palm will still have a similar effect on visitors to your garden - it will look truly striking and give even the most drab corner of a garden a truly exotic feel.
Trachycarpus wagnerianus is also known as the Minature Chusan Palm
