Windmill Palm

This fan leaf palm is native to eastern Asia but is grown worldwide. It is the most common palm seen northward and grows well in cool regions including the British Isles and coastal British Columbia. Good specimens have grown outdoors as far north as Maryland and Tennessee but it is not usually happy in peninsular Florida. The trunk can reach 15-20 feet tall and is covered with black hair-like fiber. Plant in well-drained soil and with shelter from the north winds in areas where it is borderline hardy.
