Trachycarpus fortunei
Zoom In Photo:

Windmill palm is one of the hardiest palms available. It is the species that you see gracing English Bay and gardens throughout the Lower Mainland. The City of Whiterock has even planted it as a street tree! Windmill palms will grow at least a foot a year once established -- in seven years our once tiny palms have grown to 10-12'. Pick up your palm today and do your part in creating the Canadian Riviera!
