General comments:

Trachycarpus fortunei var Misan is the  mini-sized Trachycarpus fortunei . This species is scatttered in  some isolated mountains . The interesting thing about them is they have elegant small leaves shifting from yellow to green , only about 1/2- 3/4 of the size of T.fortunei leave. The trunk is also gracefully slim making them a cute palm in the limited space.

The seeds are purple blue with some wax , the seeds are smaller than those of Trachycarpus fortunei.
