Lou-StAugFL Posted December 27, 2022 Report Share Posted December 27, 2022 (edited) Since the freeze happened during the Christmas holidays I was too preoccupied with family activities to protect my palms. I did protect fruits and veggies at our small farm but not enough time to protect our ornamental plants. I am located just a few blocks from the Intracoastal Waterway. As I reviewed by data we did indeed hit 27 here in St. Augustine South, FL one night for short period. We had at least 6-8 hours of freeze each night of the event. I am most shocked that I see zero burn on Adonidia merrillii, archontophoenix cunninghamiana or Beccariophoenix alfredii. I provided zero protection, they were on their own to survive. I am beyond thrilled at how they look today. I expected to see some leaf burn at least. These three are must palms if you can provide canopy even if you live this far north in Florida. You can see the pothos and Angel trumpet are fried from the cold but the palms look great.
