another section of ground being converted , this section should be 5 rows of 50 trees each row.

this patch if ground has been used to store mulch for the last 6 or so years , should grow a hell of a crop of trees.

Are any of those Adeniums by chance the ones that are a little more suited to cold tolerance? I know they have developed some in Tucson that can take a little more cold than all the ones that come from Thailand where they are only selected for flower color and don't care a whit about cold performance.  A local garden center here in Corpus has quite a few Adeniums but looked at me like I was from Mars when I asked about suitable varieties for this area.

Great old specimen. I hope it's going to a new spot free of future expansion possibilities. I applaud the time and effort in moving the palm, instead of destroying it.

Well cold hardy is a relative term but I know for sure some are tougher than others

 The ones Xerarch is referring to would be those crossed by the great Mark Dimmitt.. And yes, they are supposed to tolerate a smidge more cold.. ( spectacular plants too ) Can't say for sure ( need to speak w/ him about it ) but he might have incorporated Adenium swazicum blood into his hybrids. That species is supposed to be the only one ..or one of just a couple.. that can handle sightly colder temps than say A. arabicum and / or obesum.

That said, that's only when they are completely dry thru the winter.. ( same w/ most Pachypodiums.. Soaked / cold plants is likely a perfect recipe for disaster for them too.  

Now that they're dropping leaves, both Adenium i have will be coming inside until this wet cool pattern setting up passes.

Those are exactly the ones I’m referring to, based on my Adenium book, written in part by Mark Dimmitt
