Re: Trachycarpus wagnerianus and hybrid seeds available for sale
sad to hear about having to remove your beautiful tree. I have several subspecies of e. pauciflora of which niphophila is usually regarded as one. my e. pauciflora ssp. debeuzvilli (a "small tree" in native habitat) which is also over 50' tall and with gorgeous cream white bark so yes at least under western North American conditions (PNW)"small trees" can become quite large. nitens of course is regarded as a large tree and it does not disappoint---a great tree for a big property which luckily I have. other thing like climate being (relatively) equal, likely both space (relatively small or large, urban or rural) effect the choice we make in the plants we grow.
