Spiny palms for zone 9


Recommended Posts

Check out the freeze data forum for information on my Acrocomia aculeata that didn't survive three nights of 21-23*F in 2010. I think I posted pictures of its removal in the main forum. I'd provide a link but it's not so easy from my phone.

I remember you telling about a spiny palm to try, maybe your brother had it, or something like that. The wine inhibits my memory right now.

Its too bad the form Acrocomia total 'Dade City' is so difficult to find in cultivation. From what I've heard its a pretty hardy palm. They have it growing in Savannah at the Bamboo gardens. There is a picture of it in the cold hardy forum.
