Trachycarpus Takil growing exposed at higher altitude

Message from Jim in Iowa

Notice the different growth habit to the one in
second picture...the stouter trunk
and shorter petioles seem to be an adaptation to cold
and exposure...can't recall seeing any skinny trunked/longer
petiole types growing in cold climates.

Beefy -closed crown.
