Twenty seedlings, about six months old, in a north facing veranda, have two low of -3.7°C (25.4 F), one of -2.9°C (26.8 F) and more subzero night.

All un-damaged.

That's good news for Phoenix canariensis, especially so young. I lost two four-footers to 12F just this winter.

Phoenix Canariensis. 5 yrs in ground from a 3 gallon. Trunk about 2 ft high, fronds maybe 10 ft high. Defoliated, 90% brown, except for petioles and very inner fronds. Trimmed off all the brown fronds, and all I have left is maybe 4-6 green fronds. Not in danger of dying at all, appears very healthy, and already regrowing fronds. Official low was 16F. My yard got to 14-15F.

Same here in SA. Got down to 16ish (F). The 2 planted were totally brown except some of the base and very inner spears, but no spear pull. Half the 1.5 year old seeldings had spears pull and were treated with copper.

Same with mine, but it is already recovering rapidly. All the interior fronds stayed green, and are growing well now. Of course it was very healthy and robust before the freeze.

1 survived 13 degree low with most fronds tourched but for inner fronds and lower spear. No protection given in open southern exposure. Well recovered with 12 fronds opened so canopy has been replaced. About a foot of trunk. 1 died/defoliated in backyard but unhealthy to begin winter with.

Hey all,

I had one in my garden to test how much frost its able to survive. On -8C° after one week the palm was dead. Bigger ones can stay -10C° if its only for one night or two nights and the day temperature gets above 1C°. But if so all fonds gonna be torched and you can pull the inner spears. But its able to recover.

Also there are some phoenix c. they dont even stand -4C° so there are many differences also depends on microclimate near house etc.

best regards

Andy

I think these are Phoenix Canariensis, I'm not sure. They could be mixed with Cretan Date Palm which are supposed to be hardier but they survived a horrible record freeze occured in El Paso Texas this past February 3rd 2011. The pics were taken October 13, 2011 which means after the whole summer they lived pretty well. The freeze recorded went down one night -1 F and during the day in the teens F. It only lasted a day, the next three days temperatures went back to normal above 25 F during the night so I think that is why they surived. It is just amazing to me that these palmtrees (I know they all look the same in the pics but there's two of them) survived such a strong record freeze in the area that hasn't occured since 1965. They are living in front of a parking lot in a walgreens located at the foot of the Franklin Mountains, which I think also serve as a shield to the cold artic air that flows from the northeast. The cross streets you see there are Mesa and Sunland Park. I talked to one of the managers at the walgreens and he said they don't even water these palms. Considering it rarely rains in El Paso, it is almost a miracle they are alive. They were very little back in 2000 when they first planted them. We had relatively warm winters since I pray to all the Gods out there another freeze like the one on 2010-2011 won't happen again in the next few years because frankly I don't think they will survive them again. We are supposed to be a zone 8a in El Paso but sometimes temperatures in the winter registered are way lower than normal and some years we only get about 15 days of temperatures below 30 F... weather is very extreme here. The soil is mostly sand and rock everywhere in this area (as you can see).

A couple of P.canariensis, 7 or 8 years old, near an East facing wall, survived -8°C during more than 6 hours. One of the palms had its spear pulled in spring and recovered in summer, while another looked completely untouched.
