I live 'bout a mile from Pauleen's house... Whenever I head over to BevMo or Trader Joe's I take the side route by her place. One day last September I hit a red stoplight at this Chambeyronia Hookeri :mrlooney:

Winter Haven, FL, about 1 hour drive (60 miles/100 km) from both Tampa and Orlando
Summers are great, 90f/32c in the day & 70f/21c at night with plentiful rain & sun
Winters are subtropical with occasional frosts and freezes. Tropical cyclones happen.
Every 20 years or so it gets cold enough to kill arborescent Ficus benjamina to the ground.
We have a few Royal palms in the warm microclimates.

Is the D. decipiens under-nourished from crowded root space? I remember it having a much thicker crown-shaft and wider canopy just a few years ago. Or is it a normal trunk narrowing habit similar to old Jubaea chilensis and Hyophorbe lagenicaulis? possibly also from reduced nutrient uptake?

Troy, I suspect the fronds are showing cold damage from winter. I'm certain the gardens are on automatic irrigation.

I thought Jubaeopsis was a little more cold hardy than that. What does it get down to in that area? Hmmmm. Pauleen's place isn't close to the water is it?

That is true. I have seen the Decipiens much healthier in recent years.
