Re: Update on Zone 6 Needle Palm
That's a great looking palm Keith. I am looking for another needle. My little pup has been left exposed for the past 3 winters after the main plant died. Prior to that I questioned the hardiness of needles since I had never had one survive the winter even with protection. This winter, even after a significant amount of minor foliage died, the needle stayed 98% green.
