Tetrapanax papyrifera 'Rex'

Tetrapanax papyrifera 'Rex'

This form of this mega-exotic looking gem has immensely impressive foliage, spectacularly massive with great claw like lobes. Grow it in a sheltered site where it should reach 4m. It will be fairly hardy there but will shoot strongly from the roots if cut back by cold, or secateurs. It will also sucker a fair bit when established but these are easily removed. Fabulous.

Trachycarpus princeps

The holy grail to most hardy palm enthusiasts. Hailing from Yunnan Province, SW China this is arguably the most attractive of all Trachycarpus species, with fronds of perfect form, their undersides washed with bluey-white. Even the upper surface is of a paler tone. Proven very growable and hardy so far in the UK.

Trachycarpus wagnerianus

Trachycarpus wagnerianus

A hardy palm growable just about anywhere in the UK and in reality a form of T. fortunei with smaller leaves more rigidly and elegantly held than it's bigger cousin, therefore vastly superior in windy locations, and always looking fabulous. Grows on a single hairy trunk, and responds well to rich soil, though very tolerant.

Tradescantia crassifolia F&M 258 (new)

A Mexican collection from Hidalgo State at 2800m alt. A low growing species with amazing fleshy foliage that is semi-translucent and reflects light in a most bizarre fashion. Purple pink, three petalled flowers in summer. A deciduous species from high altitude, so should possess some hardiness, though not tested here.
