no foliage damage from cold
treated w cuttlass
a little cold damage. pruned out burned leaves.
This is 20 ft tall now and probably 9 ft wide and has a thick trunk and makes a great privacey screen or barrier for even deer.
If this is a dwarf sugar palm, I’d hate to see the regular offering!
There is a large mass of green fruit, probably not ripe yet, but nonetheless pretty.
This was severely damaged in the winter of 2015 when temperatures dipped to around 17F. The foliage was completely killed, and all had to be removed. It has since grown back well and is up to about 5’ tall.
Received significant cold damage during the first week of January. Looks like it will hold on fine, though. Significant browning/burning at the end of many of the fronds
Love the tropical look of this plant, wish it was a little more cold hardy. It would be an excellent addition to any tropical border.
