Re: Damage report from North Louisiana single digit winter
Sorry for the losses...not much consolation but makes for some interesting test results and comparisons.
One thing that stands out to me esp. is the Thrithrinax Campetris. Early on almost considered it but figured it's still not practical here. It was as hardy as the Big 3.
And it outperformed the following:
J x B
And a couple of Trachy varieties
I know it has a lot of trunk and size, but so did some of the others. It should probably be tried more farther north.
Hope some others still come back...inc. the Portadora, as I have a potted one too and still plan to plant another.
