All the publicly available weather station in and around metro Houston, the warmest spot was 25. I think wind protection played a factor in those surviving palms. I saw all Dead Kings, Royals, Foxtails all the way to, and on Galveston Island. Even a couple wind exposed Royals died at Moody Gardens. Seems like the SW Loop area (Montrose, Midtown, TMC, Museum District) managed to evade the brunt of earlier hard freezes in 2010, 2011, and 2014. Foxtails persisted until the freeze in 2017 and the big freeze in 2018 was the final nail in the coffin for remnant tropical plantings from the 90s/2000s in Houston (rip). The past two years have been very mild though, who knows maybe we'll another decade or two of mild winters 3 Jonathan Katy, TX (Zone 9a) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
