What time of year do T. Nanus flower?


Recommended Posts

Do Trachycarpus Nanus flower in the spring like other Trachy's? I have three of these that are some15 years old now, and they have never flowered. I should be a grandfather by now darn it. They are slow indeed, but you would think by now eh? Thanks for any input on this.

Spring.  Mine biggest one didn't flower this year.  Should next year.

Both of mine flowered last Spring, and I have fruit that I am trying to germinate.  My male flowered this year, but not my female, but, I did freeze the pollen (I don't know if that works or not).  I tried to germinate mine, but, after 3 months nothing, and tried the method of uncapping the endocarp-did not succeed.  So, Darold is now trying to help me out and germinate these seeds.  I would love to have more of these around.  Cecile

I have a ten year old T. nanus in the ground in Gainesville, FL, and it looks fantastic here.  It sent up two inflorescence pods early this year, but nothing ever emerged from them!  I thought it was finally going to flower, but guess not.  Maybe next year.
