Trachycarpus fortunei is the botanical name for this palm tree, which belongs to the Arecaceae (palm) family. The windmill palm gets its name from its fan-shaped leaves, which are 3 feet long and give the tree its name. Fibers produced by the leaf shafts wrap the trunk and may be used to make ropes, carpets, brushes, brooms, and even hats. The leaves are also utilised in thatched roofs on occasion. In the spring, plant your windmill palm.
