Dypsis saintlucei


Recommended Posts

Have 6 of these seedling in various locations about the yard in San Fernando Valley... some totally unprotected, some well protected.  Despite probably deaths of nearby Dypsis baroniis (two very healthy well established multiple trunked seedlings- one 2' tall, and one 6' tall overall), none of these 6 seedlings (tallest 2') was even damaged one bit... totally surprised me.  Temps down to 27F for 5 hours plus

Small plant in ground. Very sad at 26F. Spear is still green, so I'm hopeful. This IS a pretty tough plant, not bothered by blazing sun either. Even if this one croaks, I'm a believer.

I have a small 5 gal one that hit 26F twice, only covered by sheet, looks fine.

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!

Have several small 1-gallon plants. All were next to a wall but showed no damage whatsoever after 28-30 F temps.

This one could be a winner
