Subtropical LIS Posted October 11, 2022 Report Share Posted October 11, 2022 I was taking pictures of my palmetto a few days ago and also snaped a pic of my needle palm. This palm has been in the ground for more than 5 years here on the Connecticut coast of Long Island Sound and is flawless. It grows like crazy, and after the 2nd winter, very few of the fronds ever show cold damage (maybe a few tips that turn brown) and puts out 5 to 7 fronds a season. It has taken 4 F (my coldest temp in 6 years) like a champ. My guess after half a decade is that for those in zone 7 Needle palm is a pretty safe bet. My only complaint is that when we get snow on occasion here on the coast (normally wet and heavy) some of the fronds get a little beat up.
