Trachcarpus Taylor Form vs a stiffer fronded Trachy ; and Nainital and Princeps ( green form )


WSimpson

Recommended Posts

I hate to say it but while Taylor forms evidently are incredibly hardy with large specimens growing in Raleigh for decades , they didn't handle my 6F very well . I have 3 Taylor Forms and they all look like the palm on the left . The palm on the right is a stiffer fronded form that looks much better . Wow , what a difference !

My Nainital did OK .

Trachycarpus princeps ( green form ) had some issues . I don't know if it can handle 6F with damage or the microclimate is really good , but it has green spears and should do well in the spring . The more exposed fronds took a lot of damage whereas the lower fronds  near the house are perfect . What a difference a microclimate makes .

Yea they got beat up.  are you planning on spraying them with fungicide?  At 6F they can have hidden damage

I don't plan on doing anything special . Those Trachys have been through 4F and 5F years ago and that cold was more prolonged than that December cold last month . I'm sure they will be fine but have to outgrow that ugliness .

"Taylor", that's a new one on me.

Will, do you think the Nainital is more cold hardy than the Taylor form Fortunei. I have a few Nanital x Fourtuni cross and was wondering besides growing a little faster if they would be more cold hardy.

FYI, I received Plant Delights Nursery’s spring catalog the other day. For lovers of Trachycarpus they listed

Trachycarpus fortunei ‘Taylor Form’

Trachycarpus fortunei ‘Bulgaria’

They are also touting introductions of two “New” cultivars

1. Trachycarpus fortunei ‘Dwarf Delights’

2. Trachycarpus x fortunanus ‘Lil Wags’

Their Sabal selections, however, were pitiful.

The Taylor Forms definitely did worse so I guess Nainitals are more frond hardy . Luckily I haven't had any cold since they've been planted to know how  they would doo at below zero temps . They survived 4F with frond damage but grew out of it . I think the wind was a factor in the frond damage . I think that a Low of 6F might not have been that bad if it weren't windy that cold night .

I'll check into those other cultivars . Probably will buy them .

Taylor forms were introduced by someone who brought the plants to the Raleigh area decades ago . They have fronds that are less stiff than other cultivars .

Trachycarpus fortunei Taylor Form (Windmill Palm)

Sun to Part Sunhttp://plantdelights.com/Catalog/Icons/spacer.gifZone: 7b-10, at least http://plantdelights.com/Catalog/Icons/spacer.gif240" tall http://plantdelights.com/Catalog/Icons/spacer.gifOrigin: China

We are very excited to again offer plants from the famed Taylor's Nursery palms. Originally, two windmill palms with distinctive leaf shapes were purchased from Florida and planted at Taylor's Nursery in Raleigh nearly a half-century ago. One tree survived and endured our record -9 degrees F temperature in the '80s. Fruiting offspring from this tree are planted around Raleigh, including the local Jaycee Park palm garden. This wonderful trunked palm may or may not be a hybrid with T. wagnerianus, but it is most certainly very hardy! Our plants this season are particularly large and in need of transplanting...they could instantly fill a 1 gallon pot. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml)

I've had and have seen, numerous Windmills with those relaxed fronds, none of which have been anywhere close to those regions. They do look noticeably distinctive.

A Trachycarpus fortunei is a fortunei, all these names are just marketing gimmicks.  It's total garbage I wish people would stop.

 

I have a bunch of Trachycarpus fortunei "Beaverton" if anyone is interested. 

"Trachycarpus fortunei "Beaverton" come from one of the coldest areas in the Portland Metro Area.  What's surprising is these palms come from a run down strip mall, and experience no summer irrigation and are subjected to the colder temps from one of the westernmost suburbs of Portland that is at a higher elevation.  These palms have never been protected since first being planted and reliably produce seeds every year.  Even the homeless, drug users and in general "shady characters" in this area have had no little to no effect on these palms.  A true most have for Trachycarpus afficianados everywhere.

I'd like to add Trachycarpus "carwashii" and "mexican restaurantonia" to the catalog.
