palm trees in OK?
OK, so I came across some needle palms in Lowes this weekend and the tags said they were hardy to zone 6b. They looked really neat. Doing some research, I found that in addition to these surviving winters here (I am on zone 7a), that we actually have a palm native to OK, the sabal minor. Does anyone have experience with either of these? In searching around the web it seems that they prefer mostly shade and moist soil, but are drought tolerant. Anyone know anything else about their light/soil/water requirements?
It seems strange Lowe's had them out, as I would imagine that the best time to plant these would be in early spring right after the last frost. Wonder if it would be possible to do a fall planting?
