Trachycarpus wagnerianus


Minature Chusan Palm

A hardy fan palm with stiff, rigid leaves making it very effective in windy environments. The ‘miniature’ in the name refers to the leaf size, which is slightly smaller than that of its relative, the Chusan palm. It shares many other features with the Chusan Palm including a hairy trunk and tall stature.

Palm trees can bring a Mediterranean or tropical feel to gardens and indoor spaces alike. Despite their prominence in hotter climates, palm trees are very hardy plants that are easy to care for and which can thrive in the British climate. At Athelas Plants, we understand that it’s nice to have something a bit unusual in your garden and that’s why we have a fabulous collection of hardy palm trees and indoor palm trees for sale.

Minature Chusan Palm 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.
