Howdyall:

I've found the information in this particular series of threads useful.

I suggest we keep it up for, say, six months so we can report on recovery of frozen plants?  That's useful, too.

How about it Dean?

Dave,
My thoughts on this "project" are as follows:
As mentioned, there are several references already in existence regarding cold hardiness. Geoff's is excellent, and he has been kind enough to contribute here as well. Someone mentioned that Larry Noblick had/has one too. And a few others.
This is after all a forum, a continuum of thoughts and experiences. It is what we do best. I am all for just letting it continue as is. It is not perfect, but it contains a lot of valuable real time info that a data base can never capture. If someone wants hardiness info on a species, it is here.
However, a data base is also a necessary tool. But aside from being a tremendous amount of work, I think it would be better suited to what will become the research area of the new IPS sebsite. I will lobby, and perhaps you all can as well, to establish such a data base on the new website. Maybe Geoff and Larry, or some volunteers from here, could integrate all this new info with the existing. I think it could be a valuable asset for the IPS.
In the meantime, I'm all for letting our format continue and evolve.

Hi Deano or anyone else, was a summary ever done, you know, listing the best survivors versus the worst ? Top ten style could be interesting.

I have a rather extensive amount of info to add, but I'm still finding new damage after 5 months (eg starting to pull spears on some Phoenix palms)...I'll start putting in some stuff this week, hopefully.

Yep- I'm still all over the map.  I'm still pulling spears on palms I thought had made it and seeing life in a few I thought were gone! (or close too)

Hello all,

I am newly registered to this forum but many years in No. SD County, CA.  In36+ years have not experienced such a prolonged period of below freezing temperatures (both hours/day and days total) as the Jan, 2007 event.

Pretty hit or miss on damage and/or losses.......small Bismarckia nobilis (20" box) in a low spot = dead/total loss.   Large Veitchia McDanielsii (~20ft) planted higher elevation close to building, minor leaf burn but thriving...along with some plumerias.

1 gal Bismarckia (under cover) doing fine.

Red gingers, Indonesian Wax Gingers  under cover but no heat = dead.

Alexander palms (23 year olds in ground) are fine.

I know microclimates were very important since the damage occurred in zonal formations with cold air drainage zones the worst.

Sorry about those two MB. I take it your Burretiokentia hapala and Dypsis leptocheilos are still okay? It's a good thing having hardier types as well.

I just "popped" the crownshaft off my A. alexandra with a simple twist of the wrist. No spear movement since February. It had 3ft of trunk.

My 3 Kentias still can't produce a normal spear. Each leaf is brown-tipped and comes out partially open and rubbery.

Sorry, Bob. That's horrible.

The good news, if there is any, is that now you can plant something else if you want.

Sure. Only after an acceptable period of mourning, of course.

Any chance of update reports and pics ? Wins versus losses etc. This is when it is really helpful to us all, after 8 months have passed, all the verdicts should be handed down by now.

Thanks in advance.

Here's a link providing some interesting freeze-damage data for cold-hardy palms. The tests were conducted by a nursery in the U.K.
