Re: Med Palms in Charlotte

My Med Fan is getting some size on it . It is in that really good microclimate and has been in this spot without protection for 5 years ( I protected it some winters before 5 years ago ) and includes that 9 day period in the winter before last that didn't get above 32F without protection .
I think I'll cut the suckers down again to reveal more of the main trunk .
You may have seen this picture in my previous post . Med Fan to the left of the Butia .
Ten year lows: 12F 15F 19F 20F 5F 4F 15F 7F 8F (14F 2019)
