Windmill Palms are considered the kings of northern palms, gracing palaces in cold winter climates from southern Russia, Austria, the valleys of Switzerland, and in northern region of France. The Windmill Palm can easily withstand annual winter temperatures dipping from 0°F to -10°F without any significant damage to its dark lustrous leaves. Its character of a slender petite trunk with a full head of dark green palmate leaves gives any landscape a classy look, fit for royalty.
The Windmill Palm is highly prized and considered the number one palm for growing in a northern climate. The Windmill Palm is also great for the southern landscape as well. It is also found gracing the grounds of most five star resorts, everywhere across Europe and now the U.S. This variety is a tree form palm, growing to 20-30 feet. Like most evergreens it grows in spurts from year to year but one could give it an average of six to twelve inches a year, even in the North. (Grows in Zones 5b -10. Refer to Zone Map.)
