Product Description

Trachycarpus wagnerianus, commonly known as the Wagnerian or miniature Chusan palm, is a compact and exceptionally hardy palm tree native to China and Japan. It is highly regarded for its compact size, attractive appearance, and remarkable cold tolerance, making it a favored choice for gardens in temperate and colder climates. Here's a brief description and some cultivation tips for Trachycarpus wagnerianus:

The Wagnerian palm is a slow-growing palm tree that typically reaches heights of 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.5 meters) with a slender, single trunk that is covered in a dense layer of dark brown or black, fiber-like material. Its leaves are fan-shaped, compact, and deeply divided, forming a dense crown that resembles a miniature windmill palm. The leaves are typically a rich green color and may have a slight silvery-blue tint. In late spring or early summer, the palm produces small, yellowish flowers that are followed by small, round, black fruits. Trachycarpus wagnerianus is known for its remarkable cold tolerance and can withstand freezing temperatures and snow, making it suitable for areas with harsh winters.


  1. Location: Plant Wagnerian palms in a location with full sun to partial shade. They can tolerate some shade but thrive in well-lit areas.

  2. Soil: Wagnerian palms prefer well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. They can adapt to various soil types but thrive in soils that allow excess water to drain away.

  3. Watering: Water newly planted palms regularly to establish a strong root system. Once established, they are drought-tolerant and can withstand periods of dryness. Water deeply when the top few inches of soil become dry.

  4. Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the palm to retain moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weed growth. Avoid piling mulch against the trunk to prevent rot.

  5. Pruning: Prune the palm as needed to remove dead or damaged fronds. Trim only the brown or yellowing fronds, and avoid removing healthy green ones, as they contribute to the palm's growth.

  6. Fertilization: Wagnerian palms do not require heavy fertilization. Apply a balanced, slow-release palm fertilizer in the spring and, if desired, a second application in late summer.

  7. Pest and Disease Control: These palms are generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, inspect the palm for signs of stress or infestations and address them promptly.

  8. Cold Protection: While extremely cold-hardy, providing winter protection in harsh climates can help ensure the palm's well-being. Wrapping the trunk with burlap and adding mulch around the base can provide additional insulation.

  9. Propagation: Wagnerian palms can be propagated from seeds, although they are slow to germinate and grow. It's more common to purchase established plants from nurseries.

Trachycarpus wagnerianus is a compact and cold-hardy palm tree that can bring a touch of the tropics to gardens in temperate and colder regions. With proper care, it will thrive and become a striking addition to your landscape, even in areas with challenging winter conditions.
