Palms in Moscow?

Recommended Posts

PalmsUSA

Hello everyone,

I was looking online for some pictures of palms in Moscow, when I came across this picture (1st one below) of a Phoenix canariensis at the All-Russian Exhibition Center. It looks at least 10 years old and I was wondering: can and does it survive without winter protection? There are actually several Phoenix canariensis there. I found more more pictures/google maps streetview of them, which I will put below as well. I was also wondering if any of you knew of any other palms in Moscow. Thanks!

You joke. :D Palms spend their summer holidays outdoors there. They'll take them all into greenhouses to overwinter.

Yeah, they certainly seem like annuals. I didn't think there was any way they could survive outside in the winter, but why would Moscow spend money installing giant Phoenix canariensis palms only to have to haul them back inside come winter? I don't even think a needle palm has a chance unprotected in Moscow. Thanks!

I think  the key to their survival, is that they get watered with vodka.

Why do some individuals in this forum do the same thing?  We're certainly not as capable or have as much resources as the Kremlin.

True, good point.

NOT A TA

A quick google search for pics of the exhibition center shows some pics with the palms and others without. So probably kept inside for winters.

Definitely annuals that are taken into greenhouses in winter.  In DC at the US Botanical Gardens they haul out  very large ( much much larger than those pictured here) Phoenix Canariensis in very large containers.  Im talking these things are 20 feet or more tall at the tips of the fronds.  They storm them in large greenhouses in winter.
