After two winters to -1F the only palms surviving here are Sabal minor selections, Rhaphidophyllum hystrix, and Trachycarpus nanus. Sadly all are extremely slow to form trunks here. All my Trachycarpus fortunei selections perished. I had some supposed takil x fortunei and those died too.

I would very much like to hear of any suggestions on Palm trees north of Zone 8.
