Washington Filifera 9b? What intersection suburb town is this? They are just not as reliable in a humid wet environment after they have been through an extreme event. I experienced this first hand. Some made it, middle single digits but then declined the following spring/summer. Surprised any died outright from the cold in 9b, the combo of rain humidity soil type and moderate winter damage has to be to blame.

I’m sure being in an enclosed area helped a lot. With how much of a heat island effect there is in area I feel like Filifera should be pretty bulletproof in an enclosed area with protection from north winds

The Boat restaurant north austin. These 3 have been hanging on for dear life and I was worried they wouldn’t make it through the winter. These receive no protection from north winds. Now that temps are in the 80’s everyday hopefully they have a crown again by the 4th of july

Live dactyliferas in austin. These look like they survived the 2021 blast because the volunteers under them are too big to be from ones that were from replacements. Got a little fried this year but still lots of green

Here’s some more I didnt get a chance to take a pic of while driving, recently updated google streetview. Too many palms to capture. Significant difference between close to downtown and out. As soon as you get out of downtown you start to see chamaerops not coming back from main trunks and way more Washingtonia kill off. Sabal Mexicanas look absolutely flawless

I’ve seen a lot of people cut down Robusta that were recovering and had smaller crowns with less than normal fronds. Some really thin ones.

The palm was actively growing, but likely had some damage from this last winter. It survived 2021, so they cut it down after teens and a little freezing rain?

Literally sums it all up in one picture here in DFW as to what you should be planting and focusing on...  Don't fight it people.  This is beautiful!

I was in NE and E Dallas County, last week and mid/late March. I didn’t see a single live palm pre-Feb 2021. I wasn’t in a residential area however. I saw newly planted ones. I did see a single dead Sabal trunk. At the Dallas Arboretum, more inner urban Dallas there is a Single Filifera left and a larger Sabal ( TX?) alive. Smaller Sabals died too. A few Trachycarpus alive but even some of those are dead and one almost dead. Trachy Wagy I think was gone.

I think no matter what you plant it could be killed by another event. Don’t put all your eggs into one basket. Even I lost needle palm main trunks.

In case anyone wonders what Corpus Christi looks like post 2021 freeze. Corpus got down to 17 officially, although that was probably at the airport well inland, so maybe 20 at the coast?  Scroll ahead several minutes to see palms. The entire 1 hour video is basically palm trees.

Yes!! The drive through Corpus to Padre Island on 37 is still amazingly palmy too! Ocean drive is killer also. I'm one of the rare people who love the Texas coast :)

Sabal genus didn't even notice there was a freeze here, 0% damage. Large majority of Phoenix and Washingtonia genus came back, Livistona all doing great.  A few queens and bismarcks came back.  Overall still very very palmy around and average person wouldn't notice a difference from before.  I'm still lamenting the loss of everything more tender than a queen, there were actually quite a few large royals/foxtails etc. before, but re-plantings already underway.

I just spent a week in Galveston and it was sad to see Moody Gardens without its Norfolk pines. I haven’t been since 2016. I was surprised to not see any larger queens, mostly newer plantings on the island. I did see small foxtails and pygmy dates dotted around, too. I missed any royal palms, but believe there are some survivors, right?

All the royal palms are long gone 

the queen palms are basically gone with a lucky survivor here and there..

I'm pretty sure it only survived due to it's proximity to the outstanding Volcano rolls and Bento boxes served here.
