I would rather not worry about what is planted every time the temp falls below 36F, but it give me something to do, :P and as you said there are many great looking “cold tolerant” palms. Using 2007 as a learning experience, I planted many cold tolerant species, but some of the more sensitive zone pushing palms did survive.

The “zone” pushers that I worry about I really shouldn’t because most of the damage is only cosmetic, and they did survive 25F in 2007. Heck, my sun exposed kentias and Rhopalstylis received more damage from the heat this year than any cold since 2007, but the harsh reality is that one of these days it will hit 20F here in North County and I can start with a clean slate. :evil:

By the way, I was kidding about the coconut, lipstick and metroxylon.

37 f out in the open. Light patchy frost on grass. This is consistent with our past normal winter lows so far. Well see what tonight brings.

Matty - that was Dorian's low last night as well.

I heard you were giving him a hard time about his strategy for protecting all his newly planted prized palms.

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.
