My bottle is officially dead

Recommended Posts

My bottle palm is officially dead. It took 3 people to lift it into my truck in 2007 when I dug it from the yard of a friend who had no idea what it was and didn't want it. I happily offered it a new home.

All was going well for a while. But the freezes of the last 3 winters have been slow death for this poor palm. And tonite we're forecast for 39 degrees and tomorrow for 38. Of course it's obviously too late already.

Sorry for your loss. Where was the palm before it got transplanted?
