Dypsis Luce yes areca

Recommended Posts

I see some people say Dypsis Lucentes usda zone 10 and up.I disasagree with that at least here in Florida.

In St Augustine by Aligator farm entrance you can see many of them.I talked to the zoo and they told me they planted them maybe 15 yrs ago as 5-7 gallons by now they are tall maybe 12 feet or more.You can see them from A1A. But also you see some in downtown around the belive or not.This is usda zone 9a .But if this is not enough,I live in Jacksonville at oceanway which is east of 95 ,we have on Pulaski rd zip code 32218 by church for minimum 10 yrs  about 10 -12 feet tall. planted right by entrance the wall.  And if this is still not enough at Jacksonville Airport at Hilton has at pool backside of the building w/o any protection beside it planted right by the building.So I think if you place it on sunny side and close to building it can tolarete all the way to Jacksonville. I don’t have any idea about 8b zone like west of Nort Florida or Ga …Also I know a person listed close to Jacksonville airport she planted a Dypsis decaying “ triangle palm “ back in 1990 right by her house.It’s made it eversince and it’s way taller than her house.She protected at beginning heat pad etc .She has some photo at palmtalk . I have 2 of them I never heated them ,but covered however I can’t cover anymore they are out of reach .Over 12 feet or so.I got them from Home Depot 3 or 4 years ago.Even leaves get touched they come back nicely.Mine not planted by house but by fence and it get early sun till late afternoon sun…

I think the zone 10 and up is in reference to that zone 9 can and will at some point get too cold for Dypsis lutescens. One can grow in Jacks and they sell it up here on Amelia Island but Liberty Landscape points out they are not warrantied and will likely die back at some point. They will regrow again if it’s mulched well  but that kind of sucks they die on you.

I would like to try Arecas in my backyard. I live in Nocatee and the pool faces dead south. I have the standard 6' vinyl fence and the area is close to the patio. It cooks my birds of paradise during the Summer. 
Think it's worth a try?

I say give it a go but like I responded previously, if you get a bad cold snap then they’ll burn. Being close to a pool with concrete or pavers may help and getting early morning sun to help warm up quickly after a cold night.

Dypsis lutescens survives for many years in warmer parts of Houston. I knew of a clump over 15 years old that always returned even after an occasional hard freeze. I don't know if it survived last year's freeze. 

Houston once had 10-15 year old royals, foxtails, Dypsis decaryi, etc and now after last year's freeze we hardly have any queens LOL. Just takes one Arctic blast...

And no I haven't learned anything because I planted a ton of crownshaft stuff a few months after 12F. Enjoy it while it lasts!

There is a Person in Ponte Vedra beach and he has many palms which not usual in northern Fl araes. But he has tall king palms talking about way taller than homes. And many other like baronii .. Some he plant under canopy under oak tree etc if you don’t have well on those days when it chilly just protect it.enjoy till you can. So far in I didn’t loose any plant for years .

Last summer in Jacksonviile at earth work nursery I think it’s on Bch Blvd they had tall leaking about 20 plus feet tall dypsis lucentes for $399 plus installation and delivery so for all together $ 700. I was told this plant can pull trough zone 9 especially as they older they have some more cold to Tolarence. Another thing I was told due this palm a cluster multi trunk type it has better chance to survive as single trunk. They kinda help to protect eachother and some steam even in super cold will pull trough. It’s a natural control…..really this type of palm like a large bamboo. So I don’t think it’s that bad as sometimes weather control it’s size… many ppl on south actually complain on YouTube that they have to cut back this trim them due they multiple by all the seeds . So we may don’t have to do that nature take care of it.So far my pembanas doing well passing the fence :-) I was told it has same  cold tolarence as lucentes. :-)

Last year earth work on beach Blvd sold them over 20 feets for $399 plus delivery and installation….as they older they have more cold tolerance… they pull trough… I don’t have lucentes but pembanas and they growing well.I was told they are same hardy….

      Hello PalmTalk!
      There is going to be a short introduction first.
      My name is Yahor though I prefer you call me by my username and I am from Staten Island, a borough of NYC.
      I don't feel comfy telling people my age, but I am 12-16 years old.
      I first got my interest in palms when visiting Jacksonville Florida last year.
      I want to start growing them.
      So the reason I am making this post is something that has caught my eye for a while.  According to Wikipedia, on the page about NYC's climate, the climate data graphs and classifications section show that  areas of NYC might be in zone 8a.
      LaGuardia has 11 F (-12 C) as the minimum for January.
      Belvedere Castle in Central Park  has 9.8 F (-12.3 C) as the minimum.
      JFK has 10 F (-12) as the minimum.
      Sorry if the pictures look bad
      I find the emotes on the forum funny

      Looks like that “dip in the jet stream” is coming our way...so far I see two days/nights sub-freezing with most nights into low 20’s F and some upper teens. I’m off tomorrow so I think I’ll do a little prep but not like past winters. As I said earlier, I want to grow cold hardy palms in normal NOVA winters without overdoing it on the protection. Anyway, the new Trachy F. will get well protected, as it should for a winter or two with an umbrella and a nice layer of burlap and frost cloth on its cage with lights on the ground around the trunk and up to the crown, just a matter of inches...but everything else is going to get protection lite. The established Trachy will get some lights up the trunk (for looks) and on the crown. Same for the Brazoria. However, the Brazoria will get an umbrella over the crown, anchored with a shepherd’s hook and a blanket of lights on the ground, though a heavy rain will turn into a river around the Brazoria so I may have to improvise a bit. The Medi gets minimal as well. Sounds like a lot but compared to past winters, it’s definitely a pullback.
      Will send after pictures tomorrow...
      New little Trachy will get babied but that’s necessary:

      Established Trachy and Brazoria get some lights and the Blue B gets an umbrella...


      The Medi is ready...it has a blanket of lights on the ground but I may use cover if I have to...will wait for a forecast in the mid teens...this is the palm that is going to be most tested...

      These guys laugh every time I do this...no protection here...


      Honestly, the Needles, McCurtain and Sabal minors give real meaning to the term cold hardy...they truly are great palms for this NOVA climate.

      I love PalmTalk! But not gonna lie, I sometimes have trouble finding a space to post certain things I have going on. Probably need to start a blog, but eh nah lol, we’ll go with this!

      Pretty sure this is squirrel damage...

      I noticed several fronds drooping and thought it a natural shed and this was part of the process, but the “ shed” was painfully asymmetrical. Upon closer inspection, I found this! It gnawed the underside of the petiole, thus causing the collapse.

      Tell you what, squirrel pot pie sounds great about now. The symmetry of my palm is being ruined. It hasn’t hit the upper third...yet but I’m sending out a dinner alert for all those red tailed hawks that are visiting for the winter. Honestly, of all the things that could happen...mulling splint supports...maybe a baffle (which should really add to the beauty of my palm) any other suggestions?
