@ green mountaineer I live in Vermont also and I know how hard you got it, you got good taste for trees obviously you like palm trees. But the thing is you live in Vermont so its hard finding the right palm for our climate. Unfortunately it took 4 palm trees to die to help me realize something very important, also I did my fair amount of research and experiments. So with that any kind of needle palms are good for Vermont. As chusan palm it goes up to -27 degrees or the Chilean wind palm and thatís up to -12. So really anything that has basically needles as a leaf it will survive in Vermont. If you have any more question just ask them ill be more than happy to help. Thanks for listen hope to hear back from you soon!

Hi,
I just planted a few Needle palms in MA, after many failed attempts with other so called cold hardy palms. I was curious to know if you have had success. If you did what was the condition of the fronds? Do they die back to the trunk or do they remain green? Also did you mulch or take other precautions to protect them?
Thanks for any input, Rick

@palm crazy hey great question during the winter in Vermont gets really cold as you know. But the conditions of my fronds have always been outstanding ever since I purchase them from real palm always green and thick. The only thing is, the cold season in Vermont it makes life hard for anything to survive, including me it’s a hassle to get out of bed! One question for you did you purchase any cold frames? it protect from cold winds, also captures heat from the sun and increase the temperature of the palm. It worked for me give it a try and get back at me. Thanks for the suggestion by the way we need to get Vermont flowing with palms!

Thank You sir/ Madam for the advise I was on here looking for a Palm that will survive in the cold State of Vermont. I will take your advise and get Chilean wind palm. No use in guessing. Is this similar to the Windmill Palm?
