It usually does, here is a picture I took last week...I hope it hangs around long enough to seed! IMG_2227.thumb.JPG.753bf4fe59d897455dd9e

That does not look that bad.

Brahea armata just planted at a customer's home in Amarillo, TX 6b/7a.  He also has a needle and a mature windmill.  

Wow! Amarillo may be the most extreme climate in temperature / daily variability I've seen a Trachycarpus unprotected in. Is it ever covered or get any lights and protection in winter?

Most of them totally burned this year but almost all windmills are pushing green spears.

Thanks for the photos, GeorgiaPalms. It's interesting because Atlanta and where I live seem almost identical as far as weather and Atlanta is just a tad bit more south, yet the "palm culture" in Atlanta is very sparse, almost non-existent. It's good to see they have some specimens at the botanical gardens; and don't they have some at the zoo?

its actually 99% non-existent where I live (southern suburbs of dc) man I wish palms were planted more

I have a Sago and fan palm in Charlotte (7b-8a).  I cover them in below freezing weather with blanket.  I can show pic but they are only a season or two old so not big yet.  Blanket really helps.

Cool! They are starting to plant queen palms at Virginia Beach as well.

 

 

With winter protection they may actually survive year round in Va beach.

They would definitely need protection in VA Beach, that's a really old comment I made when I thought that they were a lot hardier, I wouldn't recommend planting them there now.

The first pic is the only large Filifera that I've found in Lubbock (Zone 7b, but near the 7a border). I was told that it's been unprotected for the last 12 years, and has seen temps below 5f several times, along with tons of snow.

The second one is in Lamesa, Texas (Zone 7b). It's also been unprotected for over a decade.

washy filifera is a lot harder than people think. Yes, I know Lubbock is a desert climate and that it's hardier there.

these definatly wont survive the winter.  they are only hardy to southern georgia coast and south.

Maybe they can survive a few years in Charleston with a good location downtown

Filifera truly seem to be a 7b palm, 7a is about their limit. I am trying one or two of these next year in Virginia! 

That's in the desert in humid climates they're at least 8a hardy, so consider some protection.

They wouldn't do as well as in Atlanta since you're further north but you're right, they should plant at least a few needles.

Can anyone recommend me a palm or palm trees that can thrive in Maryland or Baltimore? I did the research and nursery professionals don’t know anything about palms instead they are indoors. Can someone recommend me some palms I can plant in a ground? Also, my zone is 7b and can I get away with a zone 8a?

For your location, source is most important. Find some seeds or plants from someone in 7B/8A North Carolina or VA beach for a super cold hardy Sabal but Sabal minor, needle palm and trachy's should do fine

The palms pictured are all northeast of Nashville, TN in and around Gallatin. This is a sabal minor I planted planted from a 7gal pot in the 2013-14 time frame.

These Needle Palms were planted in the late 90s in Belle Meade, TN, and are 8ft+ tall! The needles are still there, but the same client had me also transplant a 5ft wide agave ovatifolia to his new home that was being built.  Let me know if anyone wants me to post a photo of it.

Love that last picture, especially the right-half! The contrast in form between the weeping tree, upright needle,  and the other foliage is very cool!

And lastly a Phoenix canariensis. I absolutely love the look of these palms, in spite of the super sharp spines on them. I got a good deal on this palm at Lowe's this spring so I decided, "what the hell!".   This one will definitely be protected and is easy enough to do while it is still so small (from a 5 gallon plant). Anyone else in Albuquerque going to try, or has tried, one of these?  I've seen several in Las Cruces area although there are no mature ones. There are even some down there that survived that same awful winter (when it got down to -5 there with between +5 to +10F during the day). I am not sure what protection they received but hey, I'm all for global warming if it helps my palms look luxurious.

 

Also, please ignore the weeds in my backyard, I'm not a sprayer and have gotten a bit behind. But the nightshade will have to go at some point.

This is a pic of a large butia, a 8a palm, appearing to thrive in the Raleigh area, which is zone 7b. I have one here in my yard to but I just planted it this spring.

I don't have any pictures with me right now.  But, I have 2 Butia's of some sort, they were sold as jelly palms here.  Then I have about 70 sabal palmettos, some from NC, LA, FL, and AL.

Looks good! The Carolinas have some great palms even in the lower zones! It must be because of latitude, shorter duration freezes, longer growing season, etc.

Agreed. Living here has definitely taught me that hardiness zone isn't everything. There are SO many factors that determine success with palms. For example, windmill palms do fantastic here in Raleigh, which is the beginning of the piedmont so the soil is more clay or loamy vs the sandy soils further east. Areas further east, especially right along the coast, stay warmer in the winter. But when temps do drop, the windmills seem more sensitive to cold damage in the east. And I suspect its because of the soil difference. We had a 100 year cold event in 2018. Some windmills about an hour east of Raleigh were heavily damaged. The windmills in Raleigh had zero damage and they are never protected here, not even during that event.

      Are there distinguishing characteristics for this Trachy? I’ve read they have thicker trunks and bright yellow tips on their more rigid leaf segments?

      Don’t talk much about my Needle palm but it’s really grown into a nice three larger, two smaller clump of trunks...three trunks are about 12” and the other two are smaller but it’s gone from about a 3’ high by 2’ wide in-ground experiment in 2014 to a 5x 5 picture of health today...what a fantastic cold hardy palm. Aside from a bit of protection its first winter, it’s faced every winter on its own. Surprisingly, the main trunk died a couple years after planting but the suckers prospered...
      First winter:


      Somewhere in the middle:


      To present:




      Anyway, sitting at the base of a slight slope, it gets a fair share of runoff and I dug some depressions around it to collect even more water...it’s good for the basjoo, too...I highly recommend Needles but keep the needles in mind where pets and children are concerned...they’re vicious...but in the right zone and situated in the right place, a reliable and dependable choice for cold hardy palm growers.

      This past Sunday my husband and I visited Naples Botanical Garden for our anniversary. Among the many palms we saw was this (these?) apparent twin Sabals that are joined at an extra wide trunk ~5' tall, then separated into two separate crowns. I saw no plaque identifying what species of Sabal it (they?) are or anything about them. I am not sure of the species but the sight was so unusual I took the following photos. I have seen photos of solitary Sabals that split into two crowns due to damage but they have normal solitary trunks up to the split. This palm has an extra wide trunk with a "valley" between two halves all the way up to where the crowns separate, as if two palms grew together to form one. Very odd. Anyone else seen this?

      There is a perimeter of fronds on my Trachy that have very pronounced yellow segment tips...the newer fronds above this line are clear of any of it. The lower fronds have always had a slight case of it but it’s more pronounced on this ring of fronds...it’s gotten two Palmgain feedings this season...wouldn’t concern me except it’s so pronounced but only occupies about two inches of the segment edge...
