Trachycarpus 'Manipur'

Well, I guess the white colour can depend on a lot of factors. None of my princeps are pure white, rather greyish-white. But my Mount Victoria doesn't even have a hint of white. Backsides:

My Trachy Mt.Victoria is developing what might be termed 'glaucous' undersides to its leaves and not as striking as the pic shows. I have to reluctantly spray it with a systemic fungicide every month or so. The pics show the dreaded, very quickly spreading, brown mottling on its older leaves.

My Trachy ukhrulensis (Manipur) has been experienced three winters planted out and has suffered no noticeable cold weather damage. This said, the lowest temp recorded here in that time was just in the region of 25°F. This palm hasn't suffered with fungal infection as has my Mt.Victoria. It's leaf undersides are almost white, something which the camera has not picked up on really. In real life, they are much paler than in T.Mt.Vic. As for the uppersides, these are a different shade of green, with a bluish tint to my eyes in Manipur.

How are everyone's ukhrulensis doing? Mine has made a slow but steady recovery from its winter damage. It was an exceptional winter so I still think this palm is promising for my area.

The colour is fantastic, the photo doesn't do it justice. It almost rivals the princeps.

Mine is in shade, but the underside of the leaves is also very white. Beautiful Trachycarpus species.
