About 18-24 months ago I put two boxes of mature Queen Palms in my
back yard. A single tree was in a 48" box and a 36" box had 3 smaller
trees. They were professionally planted and were thriving.
I live in Las Vegas and we experienced below freezing temperatures for
a couple of weeks. These palms took a beating. The same for others in
the surrounding area. Other types of palms show the freeze burns,
I've trimmed some dead fronds, drilled 1.5 " core holes about 18
inches deep at the drip line. Put in the locally used palm food
(14-4-14 Feb-Oct). I see the inner frond being green, but it has top
damage and I left them to grow out.
Will my Queen Palms make it?
