What to plant here?

Well, here it is in the ground. Hopefully me getting some wet dirt on the trunk won't cause rot.

@General Sylvester D. Palm it'll be fine. It's gonna grow a ton, too. 

I repotted mine yesterday from a 3g to a 7. It was a 1g strap leaf when I bought it late 2020.

Mine also survived Texas Palmageddon. 

 

I mean, it was inside my apartment but it did technically survive :floor:

Welp, unfortunately the Queen here did not work out... back to the drawing board. When I planted it I totally forgot that this area won't get literally any sun until about noon or 1. The frost just sits there and the place stays cool all morning. The minimum lows are actually even colder than on the north side of my house. Definitely going to be reconsidering what I plant here. So, any suggestions? (Preferably a small kind of palm but if you have another tropical plant in mind, feel free to suggest it)

That's such a small area only Sabal minor will fit unless you buy a taller Trachy or something to go higher immediately to avoid the sidewalk.

I was thinking about Chamaedorea radicalis but I don't know if it'd be quite hardy enough.

Probably not.  I looked at my palm list and there is not really anything small enough for that area except S minor unless trunked higher.   Butia, Sabals, Trachy, needle palm are your options but are too big.  Everything else is pushing it. For 8B Chaemerops, Chamaedorea.  You could try Serenoa repens

Couple of suggestions

thaumatophyllum bipinnatifidum

- holly fern (Cyrtomium falcatum)

- shell ginger

- orange bird of paradise

 

I would try to locate any of these as far from the sidewalk as you can. Right up against that gutter would be the best. Also, if you're looking for a creeping plant to add color and fill in dead spots check out purple queen (tradescantia pallida)

I think I might try one of these. Pretty sure rarepalmseeds has some in stock actually.
