I just got permission to replace the palms that were killed by the freeze this winter. This winter was exceptionally cold, and the temperatures reached the teens in parts of the city, but the courtyard managed to stay in the mid 20s! (like - 4/5 C?). Everyone told me that this winter was the coldest they have seen since the 80s. I was unpleasantly surprised by how many palms died from the cold.
Dead: (most were very small!)
Dypsis lutescens (1 of 3 died of cold)
Archontophoenix cunninghamiana "illawara"
Survived but with damage:
Epipremnum aureum (not a palm XP)
Rhapis "singapore dwarf"
Survived without problems:
Lytocaryum wendlandianum (but it died because of a weedwacker!!!)
Sabal (unknown type, but I think it's Rosei)
I may be missing some.
Anyways, if anyone has some palms in the Florida area they are willing to donate this summer, send me a PM or comment here. I am probably going to go to South Florida within the next month or so. Seedlings are not a good idea to plant, since the maintenance department is very "trigger happy" when it comes to thinks like lawn mowers, weedwackers, trucks(?!?!), and I'm sure other things. I would post pictures of it, and still can on request, but it is not much to look at now. The existing palms are growing though!

Bummer the Caryota died, that thing was starting to take off. You can have another if you want to try again. Hopefully we'll go another 10 years or so before we see temps like that again.
If the Caryota hasn't been removed, I would cut about 4 inched off of the top to see if you can find any green. I had one at the house that I forgot about and left outside the greenhouse that saw well below 20f and completely defoliated. Its pushing up a new spear as of this week and hopefully will make it.
The offer for some replacement plants still stands. I will give you a call.
