I purcased and planted 3 Cold- Hardy Palms from the Home Depot in Berlin, Md. A garden associate told me they sold many of these last year in the area and they did well over the past winter. We wanted a more tropical theme for our new landscape project at our summer home. What they couldn't tell us was how big these plants would get, and there wasn't any info on the containers.

Windmill Palm Trees (Trachycarpus fortunei) are one of the most cold hardy palms available. In warmer parts of the country they can grow to 40' tall but in your growing region they typically grow only about 10' tall. Best wishes with your palm.
