This species is perhaps the hardiest of all Trachycarpus, coming from cool and moist oak forests in the Himalayas in Kumaon, northern India, to an altitude of over 2400 m 8000 ft. a.s.l., perhaps reaching as high as 2700 m 8900 ft., where the winters can be bitterly cold and snow is common.
Likes a sunny, well drained position. Easy to grow but but slow. Reputed to be the most cold hardy trunking palm, withstanding temperatures down to –15 deg. C.
Germinate in vitro in gelatin, agar or other medium. Pre-soak seeds for 3 days in warm water and sow in containers. Germination takes 3 to 6 months.
