Dypsis pinnatifrons

Walked through the shade garden this afternoon and found my lovely Dypsis pinnatifrons prostrate across the path. I thought some varmint might have dug it up but I found the stem had keeled over about 2" above the ground. I'd tried to protect it from the endless string of December arctic fronts that sent lows down to at or near freezing. Guess that wasn't enough. If I ever get another I'll keep it potted and mobile.

I feel your pain Meg. I just updated the death of mine from a oven bake about 2 1/2 months ago..

Meg - that is a hard one to grow in the ground in Florida. I do not think it likes our rocky calcareous soil. Mine lingered for three years after soil amendments, adding coffee grounds, acidic fertilizers and heavily mulched. It has finally carked from our latest cold events. I do not think I will try this species again. :(

Ron.
