It Is... Dead!
So my Washingtonia robusta appears to be dead now... Two of the three spears pulled. I pulled them out and sprayed the inside with hudrgren peroxide and it fizzled like crazy! The only reason I am not taking this little probably dead palm out is because there is once spear that did not pull. Do Washingtonias ever regenerate spears like Windmill Palms? Either way, this palm was an experiment. It was protected on the coldest days.

So I forgot to bring my Coconut palm in a pot in last night... The tempature got down to 34 degrees F and there was frost in the yard. Do you think it will be ok?
Sabal Palmetto Seedling Alive!
So most of the Sabal palmetto seedlings that came up last Summer are alive with the tops burned. But some are still completely green. Only a few were lost. We had a crazy long period of below freezing here this winter. It is currently in the 70s. Here are some. I did absolutly nothing with these protection wise.
How "Rare" Is Your Palm Garden?
How "rare" is your palm garden for your area on a scale of 1 - 10 (1 being not rare, for example a ton of common palms planted in your area and 10 being extremely rare with many rare palms to your area)? Mine is about a 7 I would say, FOR MY AREA, The only "typical" palms that I have that even not many others plant here are Needle Palms and Windmill Palms. The rest are 2 Butia capitata, 1 Washingtonia robusta, 5 Mediterranean Fan Palms (suckers), and a ton of randomly scattered Sabal palmetto seedlings (still alive!).
