Description 5 seeds
T. fortunei is a dioecious evergreen palm forming a small tree with a stout, fibre-covered trunk bearing a terminal tuft of deeply divided, fan-shaped dark green leaves to 1m in width, and large arching sprays of small, light yellow flowers. It grows in most parts of Britain, except perhaps in cold, exposed areas in the far north. One of the most rewarding exotic palms to grow and is extremely easy in cultivation.
Sowing: Sow indoors at any time of year.
