The Best 'Cold Hardy Palm Tree'

If you've always longed to grow a palm tree, but thought they were only meant to grow in balmy tropical islands, you will find the Windmill Palm to be a dream come true. It is one of the most cold hardy palms available on the market today.

Those of you living in northern gardening climates as high as zone 6 are still able to grow this stunning island beauty. Not only is Windmill Palm cold tolerant, but it is also unbelievably low maintenance and naturally pest resistant, too.

Magnificent in stature, the Windmill Palm has beautiful fan-like fronds that are arranged symmetrically in a bunched group. This forms a crown of stunning green foliage that grows atop the trunk and can get to 6-10 feet wide.

The oblong finger-like leaves sway on the rustic brown trunk and gives that quintessential palm look that we expect to see when we think of gorgeous palm trees. The texture of Windmill's upright trunk resembles burlap and gives an aged appeal to this palm that lends a magnificent presence and elegance.

A slow-growing species, the Windmill Palm can grow up to 30 feet. However, it is more commonly found at heights of 10 to 20 feet. The rise of this palm makes it ideal for use as an accent piece, so don't hesitate to buy several and use them to frame your deck, pool or driveway.

You can pot a Windmill Palm in a large container and grow it on a patio or front porch. It's wonderfully situated on a pool deck since it creates next to no debris that can land into the water. If you're wondering where you've spotted a Windmill Palm before, it may very well have been at the entrance of one of the picturesque tropical hotels you've vacationed at previously.

The Windmill Palm grows well in full sun to partial sun. It is able to adapt to many soil types as long as it's well-drained. It truly takes very little effort on your part for this tropical beauty to flourish.

Windmill happens to be highly pollution resistant as well, so you can plant it right next to your sidewalk and up against the street or in a road divider. It will not be the least bit bothered by car exhaust or other types of pollution that could easily kill other trees.

Fundamentally easy to care for, simple to grow and giving instant tropical appeal to any landscape, it is no wonder the Windmill Palm is considered best in class when it comes to palm tree choices. The opportunities to use this gorgeous tree are endless, so snap up your very own Windmill Palm today.

Purchased one last April-we are in Zone 6-40 miles west of Pittsburgh PA. Grew nicely last summer. ""Overwintered"" it in early December.We had one of the coldest Winters ever-many nights close to zero to -5 and -10 degrees. Unwrapped it in early April and it survived very well. It now has 5 new huge healthy fronds and looks GREAT!

Great tree even after transplanting at our new house. Bought over 8 years ago and transplanted almost 6 years ago. Was 2 ft new and now is over 9 ft

I planted these palm trees on the beach next to my pond, I live in Michigan so I am hoping they will do alright in our cold climate. They give my beach a tropical look, they arrived in very good condition, and were quite tall already. I am very pleased, I will be ordering more later

the palms are hardy in new York city if you warp them up in the coldest months. Some of the palms made it though the winter without protection,but I take no chances now.

I bought 2 Windmill Palms in 3 gallon pots, I live in NH and like to push the limits. Both came packaged very nicely, I gave 4 stars because one came with lots of leaves and the other has 4 leaves so they dont match

get 3 gallon not 1 gallon
the reason for only 3 stars is due to the condition of the 1 gallon vs. the 3 gallon. The 3 gallon was delivered in perfect health and is thriving on my deck in virginia. The one gallon arrived well packaged but with a lot of brown spots and not in good health. I am trying my best it to keep it alive. The palms were purchased about a week apart. It is well worth the price difference for not only for the difference in the height but the health of the tree.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Windmill Palm Tree


Windmill Palm Tree Planting Diretions

The Windmill palm (Trachycarpus fortunei) is the answer for those looking for a touch of the tropical look but live in a far colder area than most tropicals can survive. Commonly grown in USDA growing zones 6-11 the windmill palm is a drought tolerant, full to partial sun lover that can reach mature heights of 25-30 feet tall and a width of 6-10 feet wide. They're quite tolerant of pollution making them popular to accent along streets and good for urban areas. Windmill palms are also highly disease and pest resistant. They can be successfully container grown as well but will need periodic re-potting to ensure they do not become root bound.

Selecting a location: Choose a spot that will offer your Windmill Palm partial sunlight. Direct sunlight is okay, but partial is optimal because it will enable soil to maintain adequate moisture to promote better growth. The chosen location should also provide sufficient protection against cold winds. Make sure the soil in the planting area drains well.

Planting directions (in ground):
1) Visually inspect the roots of the tree then dig the hole wide enough so that it can encompass the entire root spread without bending any of the roots. Add some extra width to the hole to enable the tree to grow more easily, breaking away any compacted soil on the sides. The hole should be deep enough to accommodate the entire root system.
2) Gently place the tree in the center of the hole, maintaining an upright position while carefully spreading the roots.
3)A mix of 20% sand 80% dirt will give the Windmill Palm the planting conditions closest to its native environment. 
4) Begin filling in the hole with soil covering the roots. Lightly tamp down the soil then water the area to help the soil settle around the roots.
5) Add more soil as necessary, repeating the process of patting it down slightly and watering to help the soil settle and fill any air holes that may have formed. Fill in up to the ground level.

Planting directions (potted): 
1) Select a pot 2 times larger than the pot the tree initially came in. This will allow the roots to spread out a bit.
2) Situate the palm into the pot and fill in with a well draining potting medium.
3) Tamp down the soil as you back fill to prevent air pockets from forming.
4) Place the tree next to bright window where it will get the appropriate sun exposure needed. 
5) Provide water when the top two inches of the potting soil has dried slightly.

Watering: Water your Windmill Palm every other day for the first three months, then once a week for the remainder of the first year after planting. A constant source of water is imperative to ensure the required nourishment for healthy frond growth, to battle stress common among newly planted trees and to promote a strong root system. Watering after the first year depends upon the moisture retention in the planting area. Make sure the soil remains moist but not soggy. Warm summers may require more frequent watering, sometimes as much as twice weekly. It’s best to monitor the watering requirements during hot dry periods.

Fertilizing: Windmill palm trees require soil rich in nutrients. If necessary, apply a slow-release, palm specific fertilizer (granule form or spikes) in the spring, summer and fall. If leaf blades become yellow it’s a sign that nutrients such as magnesium are depleted and fertilizer should be applied.


Mulch: 
Apply 2-3 inches of mulch around the base of the tree to act as a protective barrier from weeds and insulate during colder months. Adding mulch will also help maintain moisture to reduce watering needs. You can apply Cypress Mulch or Pine Straw and add as necessary as it decomposes.

How tall is the Windmill Palm when it arrives?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I ordered the 3 gallon. They came in at about 3ft tall.
My windmill palm has a new growth at the top that resembles a corn stalk header only much larger that appears to be full of seeds. This "header" is yellowish in color . What is happening, will this produce anything such as coconuts? Does it need to be trimmed off?
John P on Apr 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The tree is most likely trying to bloom. If you don't want the bloom, just cut that off. Very similar to the tassels on corn stalks. It may bloom once a year.
Is it possible to plant these trees into a large container and if so what is the recommended size ? Thank you
A shopper on Jun 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Your pot needs to be quite large and deep. More than 25 inches wide and more than 2 feet deep. Get a pot that can be rolled around on a dolly or that can be moved easily in and out of the house. If the pot is too shallow, stunted growth will occur. If you have adequate light and ventilation, a garage can be a good place if it is kept mainly above freezing during the winter.

I am considering purchasing 2 or 3 palms around our pool which is surrounded by concrete padding. How close can you plant these palms to the padding without having to worry about the roots cracking the concrete?
Ed M on Mar 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It depends upon the type of palm. Many palms do not have the type of roots that really can crack concrete. Most go straight down and anchor the palm. Many of them, like windmill palms, washingtonias, queen palms, etc. are excellent by pools. You can see many of them in the southeast, southwest and into California.
Root growth. How deep. Do I need to worry about sewer pipe?
Joan T on Apr 1, 2016

Do windmill palms do well in zone 7Do windmill palms do well in zone 7?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am in zone 6, but have not wintered my palm outside yet. Quite slow-growing, so mine is planted in large pot which I overwinter in my unheated basement. I grow 'Musa Basjoo' banana outside here though, and I mulch well with a wire cage filled with straw. It does fine. Since it has similar requirements as Windmill Palm, I'm expecting mine to do fine when I eventually plant in ground.

How tall is the 3 gallon plant?
A shopper on Aug 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My windmill palm arrived healthy and in great condition. The plant was 3ft. tall from the top of the soil level to the tallest frond. Since I have received it (June 2014) it has developed two more new fronds and is growing beautifully. All the fronds arrived intact and in good shape and incurred no damage during shipping.

Can this palm tree survive frosts and snows? Should I put it in my basement for the winter. By the way I am in zone 6 but quite frankly closer to 5 than zone seven.
j.hauman on Sep 22, 2014

penygwen on Jun 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It should be fine to go ahead and transplant your Windmill Palms into containers. Make sure they're properly watered after being transplanted.
Does the roots grow down or out?
CheChe on Jun 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They have tap roots, so they grow down then out.
What and when is the best time to trim the leaves? I live in Tampa, FL
Nancy C on May 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would check with your local tree specialist, but most likely the best time is in late spring so that the new leaves will have time to recover. But check with the palm expert in your area -- it will also vary somewhat on the type of palm you have.
I live just south of springfield ill. Can this windmill palm survive here?

Nina O on Jul 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It depends on where exactly you are in Northeast Ohio. If you're outside of zone 6 then it gets too cold for this tree.

http://www.fast-growing-trees.com/USDA-Plant-Hardiness-Zone-Map.htm
I live in zone 6. Can this plant be planted in the ground and if so how do you maintain them for winter? Can you cut them down and cover with mulch? We have no room to bring inside.

BEST ANSWER: They can withstand temperatures down to 5-10F
would you recommend potting the tree for a few years before planting it in the ground outside. perhaps a more mature and healthy tree will do better once planted outside??

BEST ANSWER: I bought 2 of these plants in Sept 2014. I have kept them potted and I brought them in for the winter each year. (I live on Long Island,New York). The plants are doing great BUT they are very slow growing. They are only a few inches taller now then when I bought them.
Very hardy plants though. I hope this answers you question. Carol

anita m on Jul 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I got one of these for my brother, who also lives on Long Island. He planted it 2 years ago. It is growing and he has even moved it's location. It is planted in the ground. He moved it last fall to a sunnier location because the original corner it was in didn't get enough sun in the winter. It's doing well . It is not a tall tree I don't know how long it takes to get to the size in the picture.
How fast does it grow?
Suzanne W on May 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I planted my windmill palm in the spring of 2015. It didn't grow much that first year, as I expected. But in 2016 it really took off. It was about 4 ft tall and filled out and looking good. However in this last winter, I should mention here we live in the foothills of North Carolina, we had 2 nights of extremely cold temps and my poor palm suffered what I thought was killing damage. However, I waited to dig it up and now it has put on very strong new growth and it is for sure going to make it. There are other palms like mine in this area, however they are 30 ft tall. I guess they need a little protecting while young against such paralyzing freezing temps we experienced this last winter. However, the mature trees did not suffer at all. Hope this helps.
