AcerPALMatum Posted January 17 Report Share Posted January 17 (edited) I’m in a coastal area of the Florida panhandle in Okaloosa county. I was wondering how hardy Phoenix canariensis would be for me. I have seen some decent sized ones on Okaloosa island (On the ocean so probably slightly warmer than me), but no massive ones like I’ve seen in California. A weather station near me during the recent Christmas cold event recorded a low 18.5F. As a result of this event there are plenty of dead-looking queen palms and very sad looking Washingtonia sp. According to NOAA’s website the local airport recorded a low of 22 during that event, and the lowest temp since ‘96 was 20 in 2014. I don’t see many CIDPs around town. How would you guys wager the long-term survivability of one here? Edited January 17 by AcerPALMatum Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
