The (Chinese) Windmill Palm, or Chusan Palm, has a single trunk-like stem covered with brown fibres and a whorl of fan-shaped, narrow, dark green leaves at the crown.

Trachycarpus fortunei is a fabulous tropical palm, very resilient and adaptable to all conditions. It works really well to create a tropical mood with other houseplants such as Banana or the Swiss Cheese Plant.
