Grown in quart pots. Plant 'in hand' is similar to what will be shipped. 8-12" tall. Plant ships bare root. We ship on Monday and Tuesday weather permitting This is the one the got us excited about growing tropical plants in Chicago. It is tricky and takes some effort. We promise you, it is worth it! Trachycarpus fortunei, the Chinese Windmill Palm, is from Central and Eastern China where temperatures can drop below 0° fahrenheit. It has finely dissected fronds and fibrous brown hairs on the trunk. The Palm will most likely not grow more than a few feet tall in the North. It will need a sunny location and well drained soils. Wet feet in Winter will be the death of it. eavily mulch in the Fall and protect the fronds with frost cloth or burlap. We have also had success 'tenting' the plants with white plastic-similar to creating a little greenhouse. Some have said they wrap the fronds with mini Christmas lights for added warmth (not LED though, they don't give off heat). These are 3 year old seedlings and will need special care. Moving them indoors during the winter might be prudent the first few years of the plants life.
