Trachycarpus oreophilus

A recently described rare species from a single mountain range in northern Thailand, where it grows on exposed ridgetops and spectacular limestone cliffs at over 2000m and is regularly obscured by clouds and buffeted by wind. It has a bare trunk and an attractive small and compact crown of regularly split fan-shaped leaves. It is quite unlike any other Trachycarpus. Any plants larger than seedling size are as yet unknown in cultivation.
