Recommended Posts

15 gal... planted spring '06.

Covered with a sheet... no damage at 24 degrees. This palm is turning out to be truly hardy!

My three Beccariophoenix are four to eight feet tall and are in the coldest part of my grove, hit 25F and the Beccariophoenix were not damaged.

Hmm.

Mine, no cover, about 29 FF, serious damage, though I might be off on the temps.  

(Covered tonight!)

Four solid nights of 28-29 F(-1 C) out in the open, this guy looks like toast.  :(

I have one small 15gal. planted at my mother house in SJC. At least one night at 24. Looks good! The royal next to it chocolate.

One two-gallon plant (character leaves) planted out last year under evergreen canopy in a wind-protected area, with leaf-mulch. most exposed leaf-tissue was killed in a 15-hour freeze, to 23.3F, on 3 January 2008. The plant is still very much alive, lower leaf-areas and spear still green. As with alfredii, am hopeful this will gain hardiness with size.

Dave, did you ever find out what happened here.  You seemed to have uncharacteristic damage.  Was it new?  Did you get more frost? Was it a strange psychic force :-)?

I am thinking of growing this palm.  Other experiences make me enthusiastic, yours scares me.

I have 2 Beccariophoenix, madagascariensis and alfredii. Both have taken 3 weeks of sub zero temps with at least 2 excursions to -4c/24.8v and 2 lower dips to -5c/23f. very minor damage but generally both looking good.

They were covered in a 4 tier mini g along with a Jubaeopsis caffra which has taken substantial damage.

both Beccariophoenix are in pots the Jubaeopsis is in the ground.

Regards Andy.
