Re: Central Oklahoma palms
That's interesting. I'd like to try the Hatteras variety. That's from NC right?
The McCurtains are definitely slower growing and smaller in my experience. I'm guessing that lends to their cold hardiness. but that's just a guess.
I've been down the McCurtain County quite a few times and seen them growing wild. There are some very, very large palms down there, but I'm guessing they're hundreds of years old. I completely agree that palms gain hardiness with age...maybe has something to do with deeper/more established roots? Don't really know, but it definitely seems to be the case.
