Lytocaryum Weddellianum or Hoehnei Salt Tolerance?

Dwarf Fan

Recommended Posts

In my “Cold Hardy Tropical Looking Dwarf” thread some Palm Talkers recommended Lytocaryum Weddellianum or Hoehnei due to cold tolerance tolerance and maximum growth height. I really LOVE the Tropical looks of the Lytocaryum Spp. but I am a little hesitant due to their many “tender” characteristics regarding sun light, wind and temperature that I have found posted online.

Does anyone have any experience growing these near the coast? All online resources I have found has Salt Tolerance listed as: UNKNOWN.

Are these even worth me trying to take a chance with under canopy to provide dappled sunlight and near structure to attempt to keep temps from dropping too cold or are these just gonna look beat up their whole lives until eventually going into the compost bin if I try these in my location of 9B winters, salt air and Texas coastal sun?
