Trachycarpus 'Bulgaria', 1000 fresh seeds, wholesale packet
The seeds were collected from genuine exemplars of Trachycarpus 'Bulgaria' located in Assenovgrad, near Plovdiv. They have never seen any protection during the winters. The owner Kiril Donov planted the palms back in 1999 from seeds, collected from the famous genuine exemplars, growing in front of the police station in the Sunny beach resort, near the Black Sea coast.
Originally, these parent palms have male parent from Sochi, Russia and the female parent was from the museum palms in Plovdiv. The male parent from Sochi was Trachycarpus excelsa, as described in the Russian scientific literature. Today Trachycarpus excelsa is clasified inside the species Trachycarpus fortunei.
The palms in Bulgaria experience extremely freezing weather almost each winter. Still, they seed freely around the mother plant's bases. When the small seedlings survive, they develop the cold hardiness in the future generations.
Please note, that these seeds are only available from Christmas until the end of March each year! The usual germination is between 80-95 %.
