This is a Google Street View capture of younger queens planted in front of a Walmart in Starke, FL in 2008:563749519_Screenshot2020-11-26at3_26_54PM.png.1329fe6a738e164513b362a77fa3e227.png

Here are the same ones in 2018:

Gainesville Airport, roughly 20 miles SOUTH, recorded a low of 17F in the Jan 2010 freeze:

Definitely interesting to find! Queens seem to be more hardy than a lot of people give them credit for.

Mine at my childhood home survived an apparent 17 degree low in Jacksonville.
