Saw these palms - they look very tropical (archies?) that I doubt will make it through the winter here in College Station. Thank you for the help in IDing these guys.

Hello everyone, recently joined new member. Very nice to meet you all!!
Could you help me with an ID for this palm? My first guess was Adonidia merrillii but somehow just looks different to me. What do you think? I can add details of trunk, fruits, inflorescences and leaves if required. Thanks.
so my butia was in decline along with my other plants this past winter indoors
a combination of insects, overwatering and underwatering
the yellowing started during this time
when it came outside it put out a nice sized leaf but it was yellow as well
after doing some reading here on the forum i found a thread which recommended adding sulphur to the soil
Butia capitata yellowing... posted by County Ag Agent
i have been adding small spoonfuls of sulphur and it has worked to green up the butiathank you!!
a friend bought two foxtail palms this spring but now the spears are too tall to fit at his place
looks like i will be plant sitting these two foxtails!
one spent its summer not too far from me, the other was outside of toronto
it went through some cold temps which we did not get here in toronto recently
so some leaves have gone brown on the one
something i found interesting was out of my two mediterranean fan palms the taller one has a skinny trunk and the shorter one has much more gerth
squirrels wreaked havoc on my seedlings.. i will do a final count when they come inside but there were significant losses
next year i will take precautions to avoid this
here are some pics of the yard
I saw this palm on my walk today. I'm thinking it's a butia? Let me know what you guys think. I appreciate the help!
I don't even remember now, at which So Cal Palm Society meeting auction I bought this Dypsis. I do recall it was solitary and probably no more than a 1 gallon when purchased. I dropped it in a shaded spot under a Burretiokentia hapala, probably anticipating it would be a smaller gauge trunk and continue taking advantage of the Burretiokentia's shade. It has since produced one new subterranean offset from the main trunk. Any thoughts on which fine leafed Dypsis this is? Markings on the trunk should be a clue.
