Under beach umbrella for canopy!

Minor spotting.

I honestly thought they'd just melt away this morning...

Any frost?

Btw, what kind of mulch is that one?

I kept the frost off with a beach umbrella Rafael.

My bamboo canopy should be big enough by next winter to provide the canopy they'll need...

It's cypress mulch.

I wimped out. 85% of my potted palms (along with the King hybrid you gave me) & my Mango went into the garage, which never got below 52. I covered up a few of the palms in the yard. I think it only got to around 28 and I didn't get any frost. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I had minimal, if any damage.
