Question from a customer:
During last winter’s freeze my Robellini palm’s leaves turned brown. I cut the dead foliage off thinking new ones will grow back, but it is almost August, and there are still no new leaves. Does it mean my Robellini palm was damaged by freeze and I need to replace it?
Excellent question! If you haven’t seen any signs of new growth to date, more than likely the palm tree is dead and needs to be replaced. Typically Robellinis and Queen Palms can handle the cold weather, but occasionally Pasco and Hernando counties get particularly cold winters.
