Dypsis Baronii

Recommended Posts

doubravsky

This was interesting. I have several- all from 5 gallon this year or last. One that was out in the colder area with no protection is toast....

Dave (post 1), I'm assuming your unprotected D. baronii got the same lows as your protected ones?? Or was it slightly colder in the unprotected area?

27F and both plants, about 5 years old, completely fried.  The smaller one is already dead.  Larger one looks like the spikes may survive (larger plant about 6' tall leaf tips).  This larger plant had quite a bit of protection, not only overhead from shade cloth and Strelitzia nicolai (totally fried), but also growing amonst other taller trees (Itallian Cypress)... and right next to (fronds overlapping) a Ravenea juliette that went nearly unscathed... yet this plant, 6' tall over all, with three healthy, happy stems, was completely and utterly defoliated... what a wimp!!!!  Was totally surprised by that.

Patrick, the worst one was in the coldest part of the yard... bottom of a 10' slope... where it looks like everything in that area got completely toasted.

The other one was nearer the house, and near the heated pool, which helped I believe.

Egad!

My prior post, well, sucks.

Sorry.

Four days of 28-29 FF (-c) straight all night, or at least several hours, fully exposed, 5% damage.

All plants in the ground three+ years, trunking flowered first time this summer, so far so good.  

Babies in five-gallons, apparently stood up to three days of 24.8, then another day of 28 F, exposed.  No damage.  Hip-hip-hoo-ray!

THings generally went well for the baronii, except for a bit of damage a couple of weeks after we had four days of 28-29 F, no frost:

Update 4/10/07

Single trunking d. Baronii in protected location dead.

Clumping d. Baronii ( looks much different than single trunk ) in less protected location... no damage.

I think these are two different Dypsis.

Have any of the damaged D. baronii recovered this summer?  Mine were close to the house and our temp only hit 28 in Jan.; so, they didn't get tested.  Thanks.

Quick refresh of this thread.  Did anyone who had serious (fatal-looking) damage on their clumping Dypsis see a recovery from the roots this summer?  I'm just wondering whether these palms are resilient when damaged..  Thanks.

I had two that had >50% leaf damage grow new spears, pulled them, and then it came back and seems ok.

Also had one that completely fried.... never to return :(

Thanks, Dave.  This is helpful for siting this palm.  Looks like it will need a lot of protection where I am.
