Hi John, repeat after me.. 'Trachycarpus ukhrulensis'... formerly 'manipur'. (NO, I don't know how to pronounce it!) :lol:

I can't even type it.....I assume that this is the new approved Dransfield name?

We have a couple of mani/naga/ukh's, and they're too slow for us too.

however if one was planted for me as a present when I was born, then that would have been nice.

hey that just gave me an idea, I'll give them to the next grandchildren.

Cheers Steve

It is not dead, it is just senescence.

I have a couple of these and decided to put this 2 gallon plant in the ground. It seems to be doing well, looks like it digs the cool weather, but has been ok in the heat so far.

I have a few Manipurs. They have been quite slow even in the ground but tolerate frost and drought quite well. One think I noticed is the pointy hastula. Not very silver undersides so far. The leaves feel papery thin despite grown in full sun.

Soro, are you 100% sure that is a Mainpur?

The reason why I ask is that I am by process of elimination trying to ID my mystery Trachy.

So far the indications are that it may be a Takil but I cant rule out that it may also be Manipur or Oreophilus.

My mystery Trachy does not look like the one in your photos though.

Regards Andy.

Bangor, Norin Iron Zone 9a Min temp normally around -3 Degrees C, rarely -6C. Only 2 x -2.0C so far, verging on 9b this year. No snow or Frost this Winter. Several just subzero's this year, lets hope it stays this way. Normally around 5C to 10C + in winter, with lots of wind & rain. Summers usually better, 20C to 25 C occasionally 25C to 28C, also quite humid being a coastal town
