Caryota Spears

Recommended Posts

My Caryota has thrown a spear! Many nights of 20-25 F, with at least a month of below freezing every night. Totally defoliated. But, it was 12 ft tall and is now 13, with the added spear. I thought it was seriously dead, but It's Alive! (With the help of R-13 pink fiberglass insulation until mid-April).

Keep an eye on it. Damage can show itself when the first couple of fronds open up.

Thanks. I'll watch closesly.

My canariensis seemed to go through winter with no problems at all; no browning of fronds etc. The Washingtonias took a real hit here, however. Several large ones recently installed in the last year or two didn't make it (people with too much money, too little knowledge). The survivors lost most of their fronds. My 7ft trunk Washie lost all but two leaves. My 20 footer lost a lot of fronds, but still kept the most recent ones green. Both are looking much happier now with quite a bit of new growth. My fingers are crossed.
