Chester posted this weather warm up in Brookings a while back.  They do have those odd warm ups from time to time.

So yes, these palms go further north than Brookings.

I've had to load up my old photo hard drive to have a look at pictures I took there some 15 years ago, because I remember seeing queen and king palms there.  I've got loads of photos of Phoenix, Washingtonia, Butia, but since others have shared these I'll just put the most interesting ones.

The first two are the same, nice looking queen palms, photos taken in 2006 - it would be great to verify whether these are still around.  I'm intending to visit family out that way in the next year or so, so if nobody gets to them first I'll get some updated photos when that eventually happens.

I also spotted an Archontophoenix there a couple years later, in 2008.  Looks like there are some queen palms next to it too.  This one even has an address in the photo, so we know where to look to see if it is still there.  This was the most surprising palm I've ever seen in Oregon so I hope it's still there and even bigger now.

I head talk of Archontophoenix being there before, perhaps Howea too.  I'm sure the queens are still there, they probably are just a little slower growing with the cool weather

      Hey I was wondering if there was a VERY HARDY alternative to the royal palm, queen palm, coconut palm, or foxtail palm that is fast growing, self seeds like a Washingtonia, and can take temps down to 7-10f. Requirements must be pinnate/feather leaf, grows to around 30-50 feet, slim trunk, preferably easy root system, and NON CLUMPING. I prefer feather over fan but that's my opinion all plants are beautiful. One more thing must be able to take 10f with minimal damage. Don't tell me a pindo those things take forever to grow. We are technically zone 7 but we haven't gone below 10f since the artic blast of 2013-2014. Thanks.

      Welp, the weather is warm and I’m finally going to tour my palms after this winter. This winter was very warm for Maryland Standards. The lowest temperature I can recall is 19°F. Which is good for my palms’ first winter to help acclimate them.
