Description Plant Care  Videos Q & A Description

Trithrinax campestris, the Blue Needle Palm, is an awesome palm from Argentina which produces incredibly stiff, blue-grey leaves atop a stout, spiky bleached trunk, making this one of the most impressive palms we are able to grow in the U.K. We have a large specimen planted Bat our nursery growing on heavy clay soil that is flourishing, shrugging off the last 2 cold winters with no damage to it's leaves.  This palm is essential to all lovers of hardy exotics and architectural plants.
