Sorry, but they don't have a chance. If you would like, I have way too many Canary Island seedlings about that size. If you would like some I would gladly send you some for free (just cover shipping)...

Yes and no...

when you are calling it "Areca" I'm assuming you are talking about the Dypsis lutescens. If you are, then yes it can survive your climate, but only as a shade palm. That tree can barely look healthy...

Sorry but no,

The Lipstick palm doesn't like weather that gets below 70'F and will certainly die with weather in the 40s. It's hard enough to them grow indoors (but is possible, i have one) and even still...

Don't get me wrong, they will stay green year round. All I was warning you was that their shade of green is on the darker side. The ones on the show were a very light, lime green shade due to TV...

The common name is "Sago Palm", but it is actually a Cycad not a palm. The botanical name is Cycas revoluta if you are trying to research it.

The trees with the hairy trunks outside the home are Windmill Palms, Trachycarpus fortunei. The trees in the pots inside their home are Lady Palms, Rhapis excelsa.

Just a fair warning for you;...

It could be the sun or fertilizer.

If you have them in the sun they can take awhile to adapt.

The amount of fertilizer that is needed depends on what you are giving them. For example, an organic fertilizer needs to be applied...

Here's my best guess..

I'd say it's a Washingtonia filifera, or California Fan Palm / Desert Fan Palm. It could also be a Mexican fan, but the trunk's diameter is a little large to be a Mexican fan.

The tree is either a Mexican Fan Palm or a California Fan Palm; you can't really tell them apart until they start trunking. Both trees are VERY hardy trees and can take some pretty cold temps. The...

It's a Pygmy Date Palm

Phoenix roebelenii is the botanical name. That one is fairly mature, my guess is that its about 8-10 years old.
