I'm planning on attending at this point.  At this rate, I'll have a conference or a field trip every month of this year LOL.  If you go @RedRabbit, see you there!

I plan to be there all the way from Cape Coral. Best deals on palms I've found. One of the highlights of my gardening year.

Sunday, April 14

9:15 AM: Meet at Flamingo Gardens Entrance

3750 South Flamingo Road
Davie, FL 33330-1614

https://www.flamingogardens.org/home.html

Phone:  954-473-2955

At 9:30 we will board transportation which will take us back to the new Cycad Garden which was made possible by Chip Jones and Charles Ross!  If you miss the ride, it’s a 15-20 minute walk back to the collection, so it may be important to you to be there before the gate opens at 9:30.

 

2nd Stop:  Jones Landscaping Nursery

Lunch on the grill will be provided here by CFPACS – Bring a Chair!

5301 SW 82nd Avenue

Davie FL 33328

After touring the Cycad Garden at Flamingo Gardens we are going to re-gather at Jones Landscaping Nursery where we will grill and have lunch.  Chip is opening the nursery specifically for us.  For those of you that don’t know, Chip is quite the expert on Cycads so we want to give you as one-on-one time as possible.  We are going to seek volunteers to help with the prep, cooking, and clean up so Chip can interact with the attendees.  Chip has been extraordinarily helpful setting up the Sunday stops. 

 

Hotel reservations

CFPACS does no have a host hotel but as there appears to be some big events happening in the area around that time, we suggest you find a place to stay sooner rather than later!  Maybe some of you can get together and book an AirBnB and split the cost!

 

Please email Maryann at this email by April 10 and let us know if you plan to attend one or both days so we can get a head count for the seats and food.

      Overview
      The PalmTalk forums contain thousands of observations on the cold tolerance from a variety of locations and climates.  One of the primary difficulties in determining cold hardiness of a particular species or variety of palm is that observations vary greatly, even at the same temperature in the same location.  Therefore, hardiness can be more accurately expressed as a probability rather than in absolutes.  
      The goal of the attached list is to more accurately calculate the probability and degree of damage one could expect from a freeze on a particular species or variety of palm by consolidating the available data into one document.  This list is provided without any warranty or guarantee, expressed or implied.
      Several factors can influence the effect of a low temperature on a palm.  These include:
      Ultimate low temperature Duration of the freeze – time below 28F, time below 32F, number of days with low temperatures Weather before freeze – was it warm and sunny with plants in active growth or were the palms given time to harden off by a slower onset of below average temperatures? Advective vs. Radiational freeze? – Advective freezes are usually more damaging due to wind chill and less stratification. Overhead canopy/protective siting – Was the plant out in the open or under cover?  Are there structures or plants being used as windbreaks?  Canopy typically mitigates frost formation during a radiational freeze and windbreaks lessen the windchill effect during an advective freeze. Frost – did frost form? Wet vs. Dry – did the freeze come with wet/damp soils from a preceding rain storm or was the ground dry? Size and overall health of the plant – A healthy, mature palm is usually more likely to survive than a palm that was juvenile or unhealthy. Another consideration is how long a grower waited after the freeze to report damage.  Sometimes damage will manifest itself weeks or months after the actual freeze.  If a report comes too soon after the freeze, then the report could change.
      When possible, the list is an attempt to consolidate observations into an easily searchable list that captures as many of the factors influencing damage and survival.  Because new observations are constantly being added, this list is a perpetual work in progress.
      Credits
      The following resources were and are being used to build this list:
      http://www.trebrown.com/palms_arecaceae.php - Used to build the initial list of palms since it is fairly complete and up to date.  Observations added to the list were checked against this list.  If the check failed, it was either because the name given is a synonym or another name needed to be added to the list. http://www.theplantlist.org – Used to check for synonyms of the palm species and varieties in the Trebrown list when no match could be found.  www.palmpedia.net – Invaluable as a tool to check for synonyms and species potentially not listed by the Trebrown list.  http://www.cfpacs.org/freezes-central-florida/ - The freeze observations at this site were added to this list and are also posted in the PalmTalk forums in the Freeze Damage Data section at the following URL: https://www.palmtalk.org/forum/index.php?/topic/40159-aaa-florida-general-palm-hardiness-data/ https://www.bg-map.com/noblick.html - The two tables available here were merged and duplicates were removed before expanding the list giving each observation its own row in the table.  When the name of the palm in this list could be identified as a synonym, the name in this list was preserved in the Description field in brackets [].  There is a full list of citations at this page that includes several active forum participants. https://www.palmtalk.org/forum/ - Some of the hardiness observations throughout the forum have been loaded into this list.  This portion will always be a work in progress. 201909190030_HardinessObservationsMasterData.xlsx
