2021/2022 Winter In-ground Palm Damage

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I know I'm late on this, but checking in with my 2021/2022 winter in-ground palm damage. Worst I've had in quite some time, but I'm sorry, I don't recall the exact temps. :crying: I'll note just the ones with damage:

  • All four Hyophorbe lagenicaulis had completely fried leaves but lost only one.
  • Both Elaeis guineensis (not trunking yet, but flowering) completely fried leaves, but fully recovered.
  • All four mature growths on Dypsis cabadae killed, but younger offshoots were fine.
  • All three Dypsis decaryi had some damage of the leaves but nothing terrible.
  • Surprisingly, all of Satakentia liukiuensis leaves were completely fried but it appears to be making a slow come-back.
  • Also surprisingly, the two Beccariophoenix alfredii had plenty of leaf damage but are fine.
  • The two Syagrus schizophylla completely fried but came back.

Here is a positive experience some might find interesting...First winter outside and only with protection of bare Ceiba branches, Sabinaria magnifica in 15 gallon pot had ZERO damage!! :yay:

Oops, forgot about a couple:

  • Pritchardia hillebrandii had mostly fried leaves but came back nicely.
  • There were two large potted Pritchardia pacifica and two large potted Verschaffeltia splendida both water stressed under bare Ceiba branches. Both splendidas croaked but the two pacificas had hardly any damage and have made a beautiful comeback.
