Trachycarpus wagnerianus is unknown in the wild but may have originated in cultivation in Japan, where it was first discovered by the horticulturalist Albert Wagner of Leipzig, Germany early last century. It has remained in comparative obscurity until recently, when its qualities as a garden plant were at last realized.[1] The trunk grows to 30 feet or sometimes more and is 8 to 10 inches in diameter when free of the leaf base fibers that tend to remain for a good while. The leaf crown is hemispherical and often extended, especially in younger individuals. The leaves of younger are nearly circular, but those of older plants tend to be hemispherical. At all ages they are relatively small, from 18 to 26 inches wide. and are borne on 2- to 3-foot-long petioles.

This is an easily identified species with small, stiff leaves (much unlike that of Trachycarpus fortunei). New growth is margined with a short but dense white woolly tomentum.[2]
