Oregon queen palm - for real.

Recommended Posts

Chester B

I was walking my dogs in the subdivision next to mine and I came across a house full of palms and exotics. To my surprise in the front yard was a pretty big queen palm. I plan on going back to talk to the owners to get some more info. They also had either another queen or mule behind the fence. No idea how long it’s been there or if it gets protected. This is in the Portland Oregon area.

Great find!

Similar to here. Finding increasing numbers of Queens, it's rather exciting. Especially when they have been planted at a large grade for immediate effect.

I know some people consider them to be undesirable but around here its a rare find.  Most winters we have a few night down to 25F / -4C but it in the past colder nights were possible almost down to 15F / -9.5C which combined with the damp is not so good for queens.
