That's funny I just told him the other day he needed to shoot more videos.  Guess he listened.

Wow  I just watched it and you had a lot of damage, what a shame.   I hope you don't lose anything too valuable.  It's odd that the Cordyline looked totally fine, I would've expected damage on it before some of those palms.

most of the damage was done to the smaller ones that shouldn't of been planted outside yet.if I had known that this winter was gonna be cold I would of not done it. Jubaea x butia yatay, Jubaea x Queen, Jubaea, 3 way crosses, meds ,windmills should be fine, sabals all should do well,will be getting back ups for the ones that don't  make it. yeah he told me about needing to make more vids.

11F was the coldest it got in my area but the wind chill put it around about 5. I'm surprised about the amount of trees that survived 

Wind chill is less of a factor for non-heat producing creatures (like plants) than for mammals and birds.  The wind may cause the plant to lose heat quicker (down to ambient temperature) but it NEVER drops below ambient, regardless of wind.  It just chills the plant TO ambient faster/more aggressively.  The coldest your plant would have gotten was 11F.    Wind chill factor was a term created to let people know how fast the outside conditions can chill us (we have to stay at normal body temp; even a drop of a few degrees can be devastating).  So, an ambient temp of 32F with a wind chill factor of, say, 15F, means that with heavy wind, the blowing air (at 32F) will try to cool you down as fast as calm air at 15F.   It "feels like" 15 F to our warm bodies.  But if you died and went cold, you'd only chill to 32F which is the actual outdoor temp, regardless of wind.  It's a way of showing us how dangerous the outdoor conditions are for us, since our bodies cannot safely drop temp at all.   Not as relevant for plants, even though whipping wind can damage and chill plants faster than calm wind, as well as reduce the effectiveness of protective measures such as a thin plastic cover or christmas lights.

Ok, you get it then!  So i'm preaching to the choir here.  :rolleyes:  Should have figured that, but you'd be surprised how many times I've run into that idea that the wind chill temp was the 'real' temp lol.  Never mind me, I'm gonna go huddle in the corner in a fetal position and rock back and forth awhile....

Whoa... You got blasted 11F almost as bad as Vancouver, BC area. Mine was 17F. This La Niña lasts too long; at least our temperature will be above average the upcoming week. I cannot wait for warmer spring.

Yeah we just had a week of dry and/or sunny weather, cool nights but nice days and no rain.  Now a few days of light showers (for here, that's like sunshine almost lol), then no rain for almost 10 days!  Sunny-ish and in mid 50's F (still cool at night).  Lovin it.

@MarkbVet maybe get them both, one of each? ;)  the chamaerops humilis dick mutant looks weird and cool. I like how Sabal Lisa look better though.

 

@Love them palms nice.  I have the (BxJ) x (BxS) too. Thanks to @yabazid

 

haven't had one yet .looking forward to getting one

@Love them palms        that's an interesting mix... would love to see a pic once it's past baby stage.  

@Trustandi   know where I can see a pic of a dick mutant?  (er..that sounded questionable).   Also-- is it like the Lisa variant where you can't tell if the leaves will be mutant until it's a bit older?

The BxS pollen was fertile then, interesting.  Hardiness aside, any idea how different/unique each of these hybrids looks, compared to each other?

just depends on which tree is dominant  in the mix. could look more Queen or Jubaea or Butia. ,that's the exciting part of hybrids you don't know which features it will take.

Just curious if anyone has grown these to the point to see whether the combo leads to any really new looking plants, rather than just resembling a parent.

@MarkbVet dicks mutant is a horrible sickly looking plant. You can do a search here and should be able to find some photos. It’s like the fronds are glued together and never opened. The weeping Chamaerops are infinitely better.

Ok then!  I've seen 'vulcano' and probably want one of those eventually; I think Desertscape has them.  Now you got me wondering, what are the weeping Chamaerops??  (Maybe I can cheer 'em up)

I’d be cautious on those vulcano, there is a lot of variability among seedlings. They range from normal to the tight vulcano form. You’d have to buy a bunch to ensure you got one that looked proper. Same goes for Sabal Lisa, not all seedlings will exhibit the trait. 
 

You’ll have to search the topics here for the weeping form, they seem exceedingly rare.

Here is the (BxJ) x (BxS) I planted last Spring (the first photo). The second one is the much bigger size, I borrowed it from a post @yabazid &  @Ben in Norcal

Very nice if they usually look like that!  Most weepy fronds I've seen in a hybrid pinnate... any idea of  hardiness??  It survived your weather this winter, I assume protected?  Any idea of others' experiences cold-wise??
