Palm Trees Anywhere

Recommended Posts

So theoretically palms can be grown anywhere in the world as long as there is a sufficient micro climate?

If by microclimate you mean heated greenhouse, sure

Sure, if you are willing to spend the money and do the work. Iceland grows palms, bananas and other tropicals in huge conservatories heated by thermal/volcanic energy.

If I had the inclination and Bill Gates' billions I could build a gigantic biodome on the North Pole and turn it into a tropical paradise. Or on Pike's Peak.

Or I could build a refrigerated conservatory so I could grow my impossible dream palm Lepidorrhachis mooreana right here in FL. And Dictyocaryum lamarckianum, a Hedyscepe, a Juania, Ceroxylon spp........

      Last evening my son and daughter-in-law took me out for an early Mother's Day dinner at Bonefish Grill in Cape Coral. While we waited outside for our table to be ready I noticed a solitary Chamaerops planted near the entrance. It was 6-7' tall and perfectly grown with bluish leaves and prominent gold spines. Chamaerops grow well here but are not often planted because most people prefer more tropical looking palms. But I would plant one like this in a heartbeat.

      Butia catarinensis is a small short butia only growing 9' tall with a thinner trunk. And is hardy to 14F. So far I have not had any damaged spear or leaves the last five years. 
      This year the new spear is opening and it pretty long & nice looking palm in my opinion.  Check it out and I highly recommend this Butia.

      Out of all the coconut varieties in the world, which one would you say can handle cool temps for the longest?

      Does anyone know the cold hardiness of w. filifera in proportion to it´s age or trunk dimensions, also does anyone know if the location of the tree dramatically affects the cold hardiness of it´s seeds

      Beccariophoenix alfredii aka “Madagascar high land coconut” is a interesting palm, but it’s cold hardiness hasn’t been fully tested. I heard it’s hardy to the lower 20s when it’s young but what about mature specimens, how cold can they handle?
