Re: Is the Everglades Palm a faster grower than the Mediterranean Fan Palm?

There were a few of them in St. Augustine when I lived there in '80/'81. And I think they were in Jacksonville and coastal plain locations in GA.
Jacksonville gets in the teens on occasion, and has even seen snow here and there. So, I guess the palm I knew as Paroutis can take some cold in winter.
St. Augustine is 39 miles south of Jax.
