Trachycarpus fortunei  

Trachycarpus fortunei, the Chusan Palm, is the best hardy palm that you can own. Robert Fortune discovered the Chusan Palm in the middle of the nineteenth century and it has been growing strongly in the UK since then. Happy in all but the most exposed conditions, the Chusan Palm is a tough and relatively fast-growing individual, putting on between 15-30cm of trunk growth per year. It will happily grow in most soils, but avoid planting in an area which is likely to become waterlogged over the winter. Site out of strong winds, which can damage the leaves, and watch it grow into a beautiful specimen.

    Position? full sun to full shade but out of strong winds
    Soil? all soils, but avoid waterlogged areas; drought tolerant once established
    Eventual size? up to 5 metres in height
    Habit? hairy brown trunk topped with dark green fan leaves
