There's a clump in a Brownsville parking lot that I'm always excited to see as I pass. I see them around some but that one has a space all of its own so it stands out to me.  Online I find it listed as USDA 10a and, while I'm near that, the ones around here have definitely survived at least 1 cold blast in the low 20s. With a clustering palm in zone 8, I suspect that when a trunk gets too tall to protect you can still cover the smaller trunks so you don't lose your investment of time. I don't know if its ever been tried up your way, but seems like an interesting project. Keep us updated!

I actually decided at first I wasn't going to try it, but then my interest in seeing how it would do made me just couldn't pass it up because it was one I've wanted to try for a while but was very unsure about it because I didn't want to have palms that would live but would struggle, which I would be fine with a shrubby type palm, but knowing me, I can't pass up protecting tall trunks either, so who knows! but my addiction to zone pushing couldn't pass it up. I also got 2 Mexicanas to try, which I think should be easy to protect for the first couple of years if it calls for it.

Picked up an assortment of palms from James (a repeat customer many times over now, and a great friend).  Everything came packed perfectly, shipped well, and arrived in pristine shape.  Never hesitate to buy from this man, he's the cream of the crop.
