Tips for Purchasing Cold Hardy Palms
Even when a palm tree is considered cold-hardy, it doesn’t mean you can leave it out in the cold unattended. You may need to take special care to be sure that your palm successfully survives the winter.
One of the most important things to consider before exposing your palm to cold weather is whether it is healthy. A healthy tree is much more likely to be able to survive in low temperatures.
Think of the tree as having an immune system.
If the tree is sick to begin with, then its immune system is weak, and it may not be able to “fight off” the cold as effectively.
If you are planting in a colder weather location, you may also want to consider purchasing a more mature palm tree. Older palm trees are naturally stronger than younger trees, and are much more likely to be able to withstand the cold without problems. This also means that you may want to plant the tree during the warmer months to give its roots time to get established before it has to cope with the cold weather.
Other Cold Hardy Palm Trees
There are other species of palm trees that will withstand colder temperatures, just like the Cabbage Palm:
Chinese Windmill Palm
This palm tree thrives in zones 7B to 10B and may actually struggle in hotter temperatures. It is not very drought-tolerant, but can withstand temperatures as low as 5° F. It has fronds that can spread out and reach nearly 10 feet in length. This slow-growing beauty is definitely a sight to see!
Queen Palm Tree
The Queen palm can withstand temperatures as low as 25° F. This is interesting considering it originates from Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay. Unlike the Chinese Windmill Pam, the Queen Palm is a much faster grower. It will also produce a great canopy for shade.
This palm tree will do well in temperatures as low as 12 to 15° F. It flourishes in zones 8A to 10B. The Pindo Palm usually reaches heights of only about 15 feet. It is also known for producing jelly, so it sometimes referred to as the Jelly Palm.
