    Trachycarpus fortunei is the hardiest spieces among palms.....but different cultivars of this have different hardiness...you should check the hardiest, plant near to a wall and see what happens...

    Haven't ever seen this listed with cultivar names attached. It is raised from seed so unless somebody started to offer meristem propagations it seems the best one could hope for is a seed strain with supposed distinctive, retained characteristics. It HAS been proposed that the plant grown as T. wagnerianus is one such example. I don't know if this line of thinking has led anywhere.
