firstname.lastname@example.org Posted May 28, 2014 Report Share Posted May 28, 2014 I moved from Canada to Lubbock a few years ago. I've seen a few Trachys around the city; they do fine without protection (got down to 5 in December), but they look horrible due to wind. From what I've read about palms in Albuquerque, I would have expected to see a few more varieties in Lubbock. I've heard that there's some Filiferas around here, but I have no idea how to find them. I know it's a long shot, but have any of you ever heard of/seen palms in Lubbock? I'd love if someone could put me in touch with another grower in my area. I'm growing some Filifera, Waggy, and Sabal Palmetto seedlings now, and would like to find a local person that had success with palms.... I know that with enough protection I could keep a palm alive in Antarctica, and I'm willing to protect them for a few years, but I'd rather give up now if they'll never be self-sufficient; I'm not about to build styrofoam outhouses for palm trees!
