Clinostigma savoryanum

Recommended Posts

Stretched specimen, planted spring?summer? 2006. Newest leaf is shorter, so in-ground height now about 4 ft.   No direct canopy, but in the shadow of a 30-ft strelitzia nicolai, morning sun, afternoon shade.

Lowest low 31, dry.  Oldest leaf, which was already fading, looks dryer.  Newest leaf (yes, only two!) appears unchanged.

I have/had 2 big 1 gal plants that for some stupid reason I thought were really hardy. I had 3 nights under 30F, 2 of those at 26F , partial cover, THEN I saw the light brown leaves!!  Inside now, we'll see if they make it.

Zone 10a at best after 2007 AND 2013, on SW facing hill, 1 1/2 miles from coast in Oceanside, CA. 30-98 degrees, and 45-80deg. about 95% of the time.

I do some experiments and learning in my garden with palms so you don't have to experience the pain! Look at my old threads to find various observations and tips!

Paul,

I had a C. savoryanum from a 20 gallon drum that I bought in November. It turned soft and mushy after the freeze and the crown turned black. Yesterday I was looking for it and I couldn't see it. Walked over and found the entire crown and fronds snapped off at the top of the trunk. Now I know what the term CARK means. My palm carked! Unfortunately, next to that palm I have a new Prestoea Montana from a 36" box ($1000) and all the fronds on it are folding at the base. Services are pending.

Ahhhh Ashton so sorry to hear that!  Bummer!  It's especially hard to take those losses when they're large and expensive investments.  But if you would have taken 10 years of patience to grow up a little one it would still be just the same hurt.  Condolences.

One plant in ground at about five ft., no damage at 29 degrees under heavy canopy.
