The Chilly Palm Tree Co.
Gary's Nursery LLC
...offers information as to the cold hardiest palms grown outside without a greenhouse environment in variable (zone 7-8 Chilliwack B.C. ) with very strong arctic outflow winds in the January- February period.
Although most palms mentioned survive in the degrees Celsius extremes mentioned with some (little to much) damage .The biggest factor affecting them after temperature is a covering offered them before temperatures drop much below freezing.... -3 Celsius for example...by covering them when small with a 5 gallon bucket while it is still freezing cold temperatures till thaw in spring (White to reflect sun and not cook them). Later a tent of plastic on a wooden frame.
Having grown outdoor palms for 15 years from the rarest to the commonly found I have found the following to be the best performers in Canada :
NEEDLE PALM (Rapidophyllum Hystrix) ..hardy to -26 degrees celsius...Does not grow fast.... very slow
SABAL MINOR McCURTAIN COUNTY ..hardy form to zone 7 ....slow but strong plant
KUMOAN FAN PALM (Trachycarpus Takil) zone 8..marginal zone 7 with protection..Very Fast ,Faster than regular windmill palms and much improved robustness and impressive size to 45 feet (Smooth trunk)
MANIPUR PALM zone 8-marginal zone 7 ..newly discovered..Blue wax on fan leaf back adds two tone effect and great beauty ..Strong grower
CHILEAN WINE PALM ..zone 8 Everyones favourite...2-3 foot WIDE trunk in 300 years but an incredibly hardy and robust pinnate (ostriche feather) leaved palm
