Stoked to get this big guy in the ground! We’re in a super warm area near the coast under high oak canopy.

That’s a great head start!   Love that deep green crown shaft.  I’ve got three 4 footers in the ground, and they are slow pokes so far.  Looking forward to them putting on some size.

Stunning Satakentia!

It’s tagged as a Kentiopsis Oliviformis.

Gorgeous! They are now Chambeyronia oliviformis in case you hadn’t heard yet. :)

That’s a nice looking example. Have you had it long?

No I purchased it a few months ago but hadn’t had the time to get the hole dug. Landscaping never slowed down for us like it usually does.

Thanks!! Yes I have a hard time trying to train my brain to rename them. Can definitely see why they put them in the Chamberyonia family when they’re in close proximity.

These palms are frost tender.  My (3) 22-25'+ Oliviformis took a little bit of leaf tip burn on upper leaves in our recent 34F plus frost.   They also burned in 2018 at 30F but that was a total crown burn, this time was just tips of upper leaves that burned. They have no overhead canopy and seemed a bit more leaf tender than the archontophoenix alexandre (triple) which didnt get visible burn.   I do note that I had a small one in 2010 @ 28F plus frost that the spear survived intact while nearby royals and foxtails were killd outright.  My tendency of planting archies densely may be the reason they had no burn, I bunch them more than the Ollie's since the ollies have longer, more rigid leaves and leaflets.  I was pretty surprised that I had frost burn at 20-27'+ height, very strange.   Most lower leaves were not burned.  I had that same pattern with a satakentia (under open sky) with 3' trunk, upper leaf tips(~2') burned.  Spears were not impacted this year in any of my palms.  I have (4) ollies and the smallest one was not burned at all, but it was in a more bunched area with a taller royal, the alex triple, and a Beccariophoenix Alfredii nearby.  The royals whose crowns reach 10'+ higher than the largest ollies were not burned so I expect no frost was deposited at that height since I know royals are also frost tender.

Thanks for the info. I had this palm in the same spot it’s planted in during our cold event. We hit 32 around 7:00 am. Heavy frost just outside the canopy but none under of course. It didn’t have any burn. I have a bunch of royals that did fine as well. Even a Myolensis under canopy had zero damage. So pretty confident in my spot. We’re about a mile from the coast and get a lot of East wind influence in the winter that makes us 10-15 degrees warmer than a coupes miles west. Its crazy. I know I’m pushing it with this one but time will tell I’m sure.

Mine is a lot smaller, but my KO (now CO) was completely defoliated at 24.4F with frost.  It had a little bit of canopy from a tall bamboo next to it, so maybe 50% frost protection.  I had really given up on it, despite doses of hydrogen peroxide + Daconil it just sat there all summer.  I finally repotted it in the middle of September and it was just barely growing a new spear.  That one opened at about 4' long, and it started pushing a second one.  I have the pot in the front yard "tropical bed" about 6' from the garage.  The bigger leaf was torched at about 28F with no frost but around 10-15 total hours under freezing.  The second smaller spear is partially open and about 50% burnt.  In my area I think these would only survive long-term under canopy.

As you likely know, ones in pots are considerably less cold hardy the ones ground planted since the soil in a pot is much more subject to temperature extremes.
