Palms in Connecticut

michaelzz(z6CT)July 23, 2004

I have been growing a needle palm ( rapidophylum hystrix ) and several Trachycarpus palms for five years now here in Connecticut,, ( Zone 6 inland )

I just cover them with a sheet of burlap and some oak leaves and pile snow around them and remove it around early April

Ayone else have good luck with palms in this area ?
