Many people who already have a Trachycarpus fortunei
, later also want the Trachycarpus wagnerianus. The Trachycarpus wagnerianus is as hardy as the Trachycarpus fortunei, but there are some visible differences:
- The Trachycarpus wagnerianus is much more wind-resistant than the Trachycarpus fortunei because it has more rigid leaves. That is why the Trachycarpus Wagnerianus is recommended for windy positions in the garden.
- The leaves of the Trachycarpus wagnerianus are darker green, more compact and more rounded. This gives the Wagnerianus a more elegant look and is therefore used more in exclusive (Japanese) gardens. Due to the stiffness and the symmetry of the leaf, the Trachycarpus wagnerianus stands out compared to other plants!
- The Trachycarpus wagnerianus is an easy-to-keep palm that grows well under all conditions - even in cool and humid weather! It will also be happy in full sun or shade.
