Re: Re: uh-oh freezes


Yeah, but it's still a long-long patch from zone 8 to zone 5, Cathy. Given that the zone 8 is a conservative upper limit assigned by academics, it might be fudged a zone and a half most years, "most" being the controlling modifier. And because palms are bloody expensive--even here in palm land--buying one to try in any zone above, say, 7b would be foolish.

Actually, the palms talked about in the book are already the
"hardiest" of the palms - Needle Palm (R. hystrix), Dwarf Palmetto
(S. minor), Saw Palmetto, etc. He also talks about use of some as
"die back perennials".

I'm very skeptical about "Palms Don't Grow Here...", mainly,
because if true, it wouldn't have taken a couple of thousand years
to figure it out. Please try it for yourself. But pick a cheap palm
to try it with... if you  can find one.

Noreen, I just read 'Palms Don't Grow Here and Other Myths' which
I think was
recommended by someone on this list.   The important element to
tolerating
cold weather to an other wise non-hardy plant is its care prior to
the cold
spell.
