Also known as Chusan palm, windmill palms are named for the large rounded leaves held above a slender stalk, creating a “windmill” like form. Windmill palm trees are covered with dense, brown hairy fibers with the 1 1/2-foot long, fan-shaped fronds extending outward from jagged petioles. Although the windmill palm can grow tall, it is a slow growing variety and generally is seen between 10 and 20 feet by about 12 feet wide.Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

Plants will be shipped semi-bare-root (with little soil) from December to April. As the plants are dormant (sleeping), it is perfectly safe to send them bare-root. Winter is the safest and the best time to ship plants.
We cannot ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
