How are your unprotected palms doing so far?
Okay, so the deep freeze has been broken for a few days and I went around to survey the winter weather effects. We had about 5 days stuck in the 20's and the minimums were mostly low teens at the time. A cluster of three Trachys that have wind protection on two sides by the house look fine, virtually w.o. any damage. A 4th Tracy in a somewhat more exposed location (to sun and wind), took a bit of damage but a 5th one--in a very similar site looks fried--but wih good color to the centermost spear. Why the difference? Is this genetics kicking in or something else?
Needle, Sabal minor, and T. wagnerianus look fine. I did not cover the Washys yet.
