Seed hardiness of Trachycarpus fortunei?


Recommended Posts

So. I popped by the thrift store (shopping for a wheelbarrow) today when I took a photo of these three Trachycarpus fortunei (I assume, looks like it to me?).

I stepped closer after taking the photo and discovered that this was a cluster of two girls and one boy, and the females had several panicles absolutely chock-full of fruit. 

It is mid-April here in Anacortes, Washington state. Last winter we had a sustained arctic air breakout and temperatures fell to 9 F / -13 C. 

The palms took the days of howling arctic winds with aplomb, as you can see. My question: will the seeds still be viable after exposure to that kind of cold? Thanks for any and all intel!
