Trachycarpus fortunei 'Darjeeling'

Same as the common Chusan Palm (Trachycarpus fortunei) but 'Darjeeling' form consists of seeds collected from North East India (Kalimpong) and the leaves look stiffer. In my opinion this palm has more compact leaves and all seedlings will take good frost as seeds are collected from same altitude.

Together with Trachycarpus wagnerianus this is the easiest and most trouble free palm suited to our climate.
