Re: Established 9A palms in low zone 8B - L. Chinensis as perennial? Nice. How?

Hi Alex. I'd like to try this in z7a. How did you protect it if it came back up? Mulch and raised / well-drained (like I do for my perennial Musa Basjoos)? When or if you get time, I'd like to see any pic...summer or winter.
To me L. Chinensis is a more brilliant green and shinier green than other palms. Droopier frond leaflet tips but that attribute has a graceful look. I had a small indoor one many yrs ago. --Jay
