Hybrid rupicola I think.

These are pictures of the original palm and another of the same palm along with the small ones.  If anyone wants any of these small ones, they can come and dig them out. They came from seeds from the one in the front yard.

Located in Dade City FL. They are not susceptible to TPPD.

Looks like a triple planting of Adonidia merrillii

Anyone think they'd have a chance in a 9A zone?

Don't know how cold it gets there but mine took a beating here in 9b deep South Texas during the arctic blast.  We went down to 23°F.  They were completely defolieated and spear pulled.  These are one of the least cold hardy of the Phoenix.

Here is what they looked like before the freeze.20201115_110142.thumb.jpg.6f24b4a0899ab42e1fcf2194a2372c65.jpg

Here a couple weeks after the freeze.20210303_122444.thumb.jpg.b99ff7ad0c9836d95462f07d3e831bb9.jpg

After I cut all the fronds off and the spear pulled.Screenshot_2021-04-13-06-59-03-1.png.82d88fae6af30d0f12a9e170850e15b6.png

And here is how it looks today.20210520_163624-1.thumb.jpg.ee1ec3af9fec2394605a12aba3afe0b8.jpg

I thought they were gonners.  They smelled like a dead animal but luckily they all recovered.

Ouch... yea it got down to 24F here in January and from what I understand that was a little out of the ordinary but nothing crazy.

That definitely makes me think they could find a better home

You're right @jimmyt it is growing like crazy.  I think it's going to pick up speed now since we have gotten 9+ inches of rain in the past 2 weeks.

Not sure. I got a ton of whatever it is.

Oops. Was looking at wrong pic.

Those are 3 Dypsis Decipens   (Manambe Palms) I bought in a nursery a decade ago in Plant City.  Only one they had. I should have seperated them back then.

Mine have seen 27 in the past with no damage.  I'm pretty sure 23 is their limit.

Here's mine 2 months after 15 degrees with heavy protection.  Looks even worse now, the last 2 full fronds snapped.  I'm in 9a and have no problem zone pushing but this is the 1 palm I wish I didn't buy.  Grows super slow for me.

Have those started dropping seeds? If so... I'll buy some off of you

No seeds yet. No idea how long it will be before there are any.

My Arenga Tremula is dropping seeds. I'll be throwing them in the mulch bed to see what pops up., That's what i did with this hybrid rupicola (if that is what it is).  Whatever it is, TPPD does not affect it.
