Very nice! I’m in Columbus and have yet to protect anything. Was 65F here yesterday.

      Not palm related but I have this in my palm garden. This in my Eucalyptus Neglecta. It is a little over 6 feet tall. I planted it in march,2020 as a 3ft tree from Plant Delights nursery. It has never been protected other than good sighting.  It was un phased by a winter low of 4 degrees Fahrenheit and two weeks below freezing during the arctic blast last February. Cincinnati zone 6b.

      I planted a new sabal minor "mc curtain" in my Cincinnati zone 6b yard. I received this from and acquaintance in Wichita, Ks whos aid that this plant survived their brutal winter freeze in an un heated greenhouse in a pot! Hopefully it will be happy in my yard. Sabal minor " Mc Curtain" doesn't seem to have issues here.

      I Know Mc Curtains get a lot of hate but I am proud of my largest one. This is mine 2 months after the arctic blast with a low of 4 degrees and full exposure to wind. No protection given to it what so ever!

      Here is a small update on some of my palms that I have been growing here in Cincinnati ( zone 6b) WITHOUT any protection whatsoever. Unlike parts of Texas that saw below zero temperatures, We in Cincinnati experienced a low of 3 degrees Fahrenheit.  These are just some of my palms as of yesterday now that the thaw has begun. The large needle palm was a palm that I salvaged from a restaurant along the Ohio river just outside of downtown Cincinnati last September that had been growing in a median in the parking lot totally unprotected and fully exposed to the elements since 2009. I will be posting more updates on my other palms and exotica later.

      In my previous post, I showed how a local restaurant her in Cincinnati had some gorgeous old and established needle palms that were being removed without rhyme or reason. The restaurant had 1 surviving needle palm next to a pile of "dead ones". I reached out to the owners of the restaurant and asked if I could buy the remaining needle palm off of them. They actually said that I could just take it ! On top of that, I checked the pile of "dead palms"  and I found some that showed some signs of life. I salvaged those as well to see if I can get them to recover. Here are some pictures of the salvaging of these palms and the largest one transplanted to its new home.
