Pindo Palm - Frostbite
We had an unusual severe winter in north Texas this year. In my front yard, I have a Pindo Palm. It was a small Pindo Palm when I bought it in Summer of 2007 but had been growing fine and had survived 2007 and 2008 winters fine. Since I did not have much knowledge about Palms and since it had survived last two winters I did not take care of it and this year's unusually cold winter has damaged my Pindo Palm.
So here's the situation: The mature leaves are still green but the middle crown where new leaves emerge from seems damaged as the baby leaves have died. I am very worried since it's already end of April and I see no new leave emerging from the crown. Is the tree dead? Is there any chance that new leaves will slowly emerge as we get into more hot temperatures (summer)? Please advice. Thank you!
