We are commonly asked which palms tolerate cold weather, and what exactly a cold hardy palm is. This answer can be different within just a few miles of certain locations. If you live in coastal Florida or South Florida, cold weather is usually not much of an issue. The recent waves of cold fronts passing through Florida have of course been much worse than what is normal for our climate. We have had the coldest weather in over 100 years in South Florida.

Most palm nurserymen you will talk to want to know exactly how cold you get, not what growing zone you are in when you are asking for cold hardy palms. We understand that temperature zones are often discussed, but more vital to us is the actual number (low temperature) anticipated. This is because, within any zone, there are variations and microclimates. We want to know what happens in your garden. When asking for cold hardy palms what may be cold hardy for some may not be for others. The best way to determine how cold your garden gets is to purchase a maximum-minimum or high low thermometer.

Some of the palms that have taken the recent rash of cold weather extremely hard are Coconut Palms, Royal Palms, Adonidia or Christmas Palms, and Foxtail Palms to name just a few. Some of the more cold hardy palms that can be used when replacing these trees are Queen Palms, Washingtonia Palms, Sabal Palms and some of the palms in the Phoenix family. There are of course many others. Look online or ask you local Landscape professional for a complete list of cold hardy palms that are available in your area.

We at Calusa Creek Tree Farm have a very long list of cold hardy palms that are available. What we do not have in stock we can outsource from some of our associated growers through out the state.
