Re: Coweta OK palm update

I agree if the washys received protection and the others didn't that would make a lot of sense. But no matter what Washy's surviving in Oklahoma with or without protection is a VERY exciting thought! I know they didn't stand a chance for me in NYC. I got it through the first winter without a problem and then it didn't even make it past the first week of January during it's second winter. I still have no idea what happened since it was protected and in the upper teens and the next day it was a gonner!
Dry weather is really key for them! I guess washys are very worth trying in Oklahoma. You don't have to go too much farther south to see them getting huge!
And thanks, I am definitely liking the climate here in Florida. It already feels like it's summer here. Last night after those storms rolled through the humidity was unbelievable. I am happy to see palm trees every day and always find random cool plants (saw a massive cereus cactus which was a cool find for a zone 8b/9a). And it's nice that even though there are palms, it's not so common that they aren't special anymore. I still have a will to bring the tropics to my yard! haha.
