Botanical Name Rhapidophyllum hystrix
Description This species is known as the most winter hardy palm in the world, growing well in in zone 6 and cooler and able to withstand temperatures down to 10-15 below zero F. This palm develops a short, but thick trunk, rarely to 4' High, that is covered with erect needle like thorns and has wide spreading dark green fronds. Native from Florida to Virginia, Needle Palms in their natural habitat occur as an under story evergreen plant around the edge of swamps but, will tolerate dry soil and full sun. At full maturity it may reach 8'High x 10-12'Wide. Rather easy to grow and a great choice for the palm enthusiast. In the picture Debi searching for seeds. Our source of seed is from southwest Georgia!
