I forgot my Sago Palm outside last night. I didn't know it was going to snow. Uh oh. I was up at 4:30 looking at it through my window. Some snow on it.

10:50 AM more snow on it. There is minimal damage.

Minor leaf spotting to C. revoluta with 2 feet of trunk from 16F without protection other than leaves over growing point. Experienced several nights with lows in the upper 20's and low 30's as well. Plant is flushing now.

I have had my palm for months, and there are these little brown nubs supposed to be new flush, but nothing is coming out??

Just wanted to report that cycas revolta

Pups survived the winter of 2013-14 unprotected. I am located in a suburb NE of Nashville, TN. We had numerous low temperature reading in the in the single digits! Even a few -0 readings! The coldest reading we had for that winter was -3F. That it should be added that, as this message is being composed; the present temperature outside is 4F. Anyway, The fronds burned, and did not start coming out until July, but they survived! These plants amaze me! The pups were planted in late summer/early fall of 2013 with NO roots. This, after they sat for a month in the yard! Yet, 2 of the 4 pups survived that winter. These plants give tough a new meaning!

I have transplanted a number of revolute from the Texas gulf coast and Houston area. The further south I get them from the worse they burn the first year here in Dallas/Fort Worth. Even a slight frost will burn the entire plant, but after 2-3 years they seem to acclimate and it takes a major ice event and <20F to burn them. All of my acclimated palms took 18.6 degrees at my house without issue last week, but there was no frost whatsoever. It was a bit colder 15-16F at the nursery but only newest arrivals burned. If you keep these dry the will take surprisingly low temperatures.

We dropped to 12F this year at the nursery with 30+ consecutive hours below freezing.  Any potted cycas revoluta with less than 8-10" of vertical trunk died at the nursery. Some of the larger revoluta pushed weird small flushes I presume in response.
