Hello, I have a few questions about growing palms in Vancouver (zone 8b). I've seen many Trachycarpus palms, and know that they grow fine here, but I find W. Filifera a much more exotic looking palm (Larger fronds, bare trunk that isn't narrower at the bottom than at the top). I was just wondering if W.filifera would be able to grow here also, as I've never seen a large one. Do they do poorly here, or take a lot of effort to keep alive? Also, does anyone know if you can cross like a T. Fortunei and a Washingtonia Filifera (T. Fortunei hardiness, W. Filifera good looks)? Thanks for any replies!
