Windmill Palm The erect, single trunk of Windmill Palm is covered with dense, brown, hairlike fibers, and the three-foot-wide, fan-shaped fronds extend from 1.5-foot-long, rough-edged petioles. If one didn't know better, you might think the truck was wrapped in burlap. Windmill Palms are a very slow-growing palm that can reach up to 40 feet in height; though is often seen much smaller at 10 to 20 feet tall. It does well in confined areas and is hardy to 10-degrees F. or lower.
