Palm trees in garden design
The palm tree is a queen of trees and essential to any exotic and tropical garden design and invaluable in a contemporary garden design. Whilst the majority are tropical in origin and far too tender, there are thankfully a few cold hardy species which stand severe frost.The palm tree commonly known as the windmill palm is one of the hardiest. Taking snow and ice in its stride, it can be reliably grown in most parts of the UK.
