Common name: Windmill palm
Trachycarpus fortunei is one of the few palms that will survive our damp, chilly winters. It is native to China, but our large specimen lives in the Japanese bed! During the construction of the Visitor Centre, it was moved there from the entry area of the Garden because this bed was the only place that had room for it.
