Gary's is planted up against a 12 foot tall boulder which, in my opinion, offers a bit of protection (just for the record).

I wonder if anyone has A. rubra and how they did with those.

Old news, but maybe still usedful:  5' over all plant against house, under tree (without leaves) took 26F for maybe 1 hour max without damage... temp at this site probably was a bit higher.

QUOTE
Are you guys talking about rubra? I don't think A. crintia will grow here in So. Ca.

No Ron, mine is Acanthophoenix Crinita and it has been in the ground for six or seven years and has some nice woody trunk now. Rubra is the one I hear that is more sensitive.

Moose,

If memory serves, Gary's was crinita. Pretty sure it croaked due to a fungal infection a couple years back. Too bad, it had started to flower too. Logic would suggest that rubra is the most cold sensitive one, although Dennis in Pt. Loma has a giant one, so it can't be that sensitive. Crinita & rouselii are comfortable with temps down to the occasional freezing point. Mine (the one listed above) is still kicking, although I've never been able to get it to grow like others have.
