Re: The evidence is in and my hardiest Trachy is ..............
I agree with Jim. I use unheated enclosures to protect all of my outdoor palms. Sometimes when I open up the enclosures I have palms that I pretty much assume are dead. Then a few weeks later they surprise me and spring back to life. Other times I have had palms that look nearly perfect, take an immediate turn for the worse, and soon afterwards die. So you really never know at the time of removing the coverings.
Regarding Will's Nanital, I had always heard that the most cold hardy trachys were Bulgaria followed by Takil. So I'm glad to hear such great news about Nanital and will have to try one of those here in frigid NY.
