Extreme Limits of Majesty Palm?

Recommended Posts

Who has the most zone pushed Ravenea Rivularis?

Recently came across a nicely trunking one in Nelson, New Zealand at 41.4 degrees south. Not looking as fully-crowned as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth but growing nicely all the same.

It's on a hillside in full sun and probably not getting enough water, but frosts would be rare and mild and would get over 2500 sunshine hours per year.

Mine are not that far south but they do alright down here at 35S. Mine saw that minus 2.5C event with minimal damage. I have less than 2500 sunshine hrs a year. Being irrigated on humus rich clay soil is to their liking.
