Cold-Hardy Palm Trees
Whether a palm can survive cold periods depends on several things other than health, such as the genetic make-up of the individual palm, its age, and the soil it’s grown in.
Palmco has a “green” growing process that monitors valuable moisture and nutrients at critical root zone levels. We use no restricted-use chemicals at any stage of the growing process.
Our process ensures that we will always deliver the healthiest and happiest palms.
Many palm species will survive a short time below freezing, but fewer can survive prolonged cold periods.
Fortunately, temperatures in the Gainesville area rarely dip below 42°F in winter.
Every few years, however, the city has about two weeks of at or below freezing temperatures. In fact, Gainesville experienced light snow in 1989, 1996, and 2010.
Palm trees that are sheltered by other trees and shrubs are more likely to survive a cold snap than those exposed to the full impact of the cold. Instead of working hard to protect your trees from the elements, we recommend that you start with cold-hardy palms that are suitable for USDA Hardiness Zones 8b and 9a.
