Welcome to aztropic's Member Page
My gardening interests are centered around growing rare cacti and also tropical palm trees. I like to experiment with growing palms in the ground that technically shouldn't be able to survive the extremes of my location.Our summers high temps are around 110 F for over two months and winter nites usually around 40 F although we get about 5 nights a year down to 25 F in an average winter. This year has been warm though and has only hit 30 F several times. A few of my more tender palms in the ground include a cuban royal, foxtails,triangles,spindles,a king,and a buccaneer.I put out a coconut last summer,it established by putting up 2 fronds before winter,but got lightly frosted and looks a little dry now.It looks like it still may pull through though.
I live in: United States
