The snow is almost gone and I discovered a new Trachy in my garden! If it wasn't for upstairs window I would never have discover it.  Trachycarpus 'Pancake". The leave come out horizontal and fan out.  LOL!  This is kinda a cool look from above. 

 

In all seriousness all my palms did really good including the mules BxQ.

Haha that’s funny. Just did a thorough investigation of my garden and everything looks to be A-ok. The only thing that got fried was my Acacia, which was loaded with flower buds. Little sad about that one.

Thanks, It looks pretty good thanks to three blankets over it.  And overhead canopy for extra protection in a microclimate.

I hope the Acacia grows back for you. Time will tell I guest.  I did have some damage on z9 cordyline I think they will recover from above or from the base. One of them is flopped over! 'Torbay Dazzer' was left out side and it did really good.

I am sure they will be fine if they are the hardy green ones.  If they still have the tops standing straight up then your ok.  Lower leaves can be cut off or left on.

Actually cordylines are only hardy to upper teens, 15F-16F can kill them to the ground. ..Sorry!

Yes, I didn't protect them since they were small and I was too lazy.  I bought them on Fred Meyer clearance.  :D

My red cordylines were toast just a few days into the freeze, even before we hit our ultimate low of 16f.  I think it was the duration of the freeze the killed them.  The green cordylines however all look fine.  I love the red ones.  Good think they're cheap and readily available, the just look great once they get bigger.  Next year I'll spend a few more dollars for the bigger 1 gal instead of the little planters I used to buy them in.

Just made an interesting discovery.  My Cordyline "red star" all looked dead after being in the twenties for a couple of days.  But I have a Cordyline "salsa" that appears to be totally fine... it's small enough that it was blanketed in snow.  I'm not sure but it looks like it may be more hardy than the "red star" that is the most common variety here (I believe).  It also has brighter, more vivid colors.  Will look for more of this variety this year when Lowes starts stocking plants again.   I had assumed that the more wild the color, the less hardy it would be.  Still not sure but time will tell.

Jesse wait till it warms up for a few weeks and see what happens.  Yes, snow saved your salsa.  Torbay Dazzler is very colorful and it make it just fine too. I had two dark leaf ones one inside the unheated greenhouse door open, and one in the ground next to the house in a pot and they both look like they have the same damaged. I'll try and get some pics tomorrow.  Oh, the T.D. has surrounding palm trees for protection.

Oh snap! It looks like there won't be any pancake cordy yet. 

@Jesse PNW the cordy salsa looks kind of cool. Maybe I should look for it in the spring time.

Here are all my damaged cordylines. If you need a name just ask.  

Most did pretty good, one pink one died in the middle and is flop over.  Big dark leaf is 'Super'Star' and glad it made it. Zumba did ok and its z9 cordyline.  

My lows where 19, 22, 24, 27, 27 degrees.  5 days below 32F.

The pink one I will cut back to the ground and see what happens. The one your referring to is Cordyline 'tobay dazzler'.  One of my favorites and looks really outstanding next to blue plants. Bright yellow leaves and green.

      I germinated a pair of Sabal Bermudana seeds about one month ago (first pic is from May 1) and sowed then after and have had them covered to keep moisture in and on a heat mat. Still haven’t seen anything pop up above surface of soil yet and I’m wondering if they might be dead or are just really slow

      I finally purchased the Beccariophoenix Alfredii here in Orlando Fl. I can’t wait to see how this beautiful palm responds in zone 9b.

      this man in Sibley Iowa (Zone 4) grew a Washingtonia to 20 feet tall by building a greenhouse over it in the winter time. Unfortunately he cut it down but still has a smaller second one

      I am looking for seeds of Sabal x brazoriensis. These used to be available here in Europe some years ago but they have been increaslingly hard to find.
      Therefore, I'd love to buy some seeds if anybody has them. I am in Switzerland and have received seeds from the US many times without a problem.
      Thanks!

      Sabal's are hardy in some parts of the PNW/ West Seattle Sabal garden.  This is not my photo found on Net. Photo is from 2015 and they are still alive and much bigger now.
      The palms are Left to Right... Sabal etonia, S. causarium, and S. minor. I have a small S. burmdiana.
