My Central Utah Palms

Recommended Posts

As fall starts to transition to winter I just wanted to show yall how my palms fared this summer.

The Trachy is just over 7' ( tallest front ) and has a good 4 foot of thick trunk.  I have a little foil bubble wrap tent I

have been putting over it during bitter cold snaps..but im going to have to re-engineer it due to the Trachys size.

My 2 Washingtonias have grown well this summer. They started out with 3 fronds and now they have a good 6,7. This will be their 1st winter in the ground.  Im going to put a spotlight on each one and a bubble wrap tent.

My Sabal Minor I got from Northeast Ohio Palms seems to be doing ok.   It hasnt put on any new growth ( i didnt expect it to )

I am planning on maybe just a spotlight on it for winter protection.   If there is an extreme winter event I will cover it with bubble wrap.
