Mazari palm

Post by Rachelpalm » Tue Jul 05, 2011 10:01 am

Hello
do you have one? They look lovely and go down to -20c, wow. Is this the hardiest palm ever? Or are there palms that can go lower than -20c?

Where can you get these palms from? Looked on Ebay and Amulree who do not have them,

Cheers

Had one. Died from excessive moisture despite hot and sunny weather.
It may be hardy to -20C if you provide it super dry soil and shelter from precipitation in winter
Still looking for a huge Pseudopanax crassifolius...

They wont grow in a UK climate unfortunately. They come from desert regions so although they can take very low temperatures, it needs to be very dry & to grow they need lots & lots of heat, hotter than it ever gets here even in a heatwave...

I have one I've grown from seed. Still a seedling at 9 years old with a couple of split leaves but still not a full true leaf. It stays in my conservatory year round which isn't a problem as it's growing soooooooo slowly.

I've tried this palm twice, both times it was dead within a year. They need more heat than we can provide in the UK and need to be very dry over winter which is the hard part.

Personally I would avoid this palm if I was you.

I binned one a couple of weeks ago. It was a seedling, spear pulled, hadn't grown one millimetre since I got it.

As mentioned,not tolerant of moisture.

They are also very root tender and should be
planted when the soil is at it's warmest.

One of mine survived singles digits (F) in
mu "poly-tunnel" but met it's dome in cool,rainy spring.
