#foliagefriday #palm #morningsun I never tire of seeing the morning sun came through my palm on a warm sunny morning! From the Queen's bench no less!

This is amazing! I'd put on my bikini and fix fancy drinks! Wow that's just nice. I've never been anywhere tropical. So this would throw me way off! Lol!

@cschulz02 growing it!!🤣🤣🤣 We've had this palm for 15 years or more! Got one in the front yard too! The windmill palm is very very hardy, this has been incased in ice twice and I can't count how many snows and freezing temps! So there ya go!!🤣💘😍

@ShelleySnyder - You are amazing. You’ll try anything, won’t you?! Next thing I know, you’ll have half of FL in your back yard! Planted & thriving. 🌴🌺🐾

@nancyanne windmill palms are a very tough palm! I'm not positive but I'm thinking the low zone is 5 on it. When you start looking around you actually see a lot of them in the Seattle and outlying area's 💘😍

Wow!! I love palm trees... I want one so bad, but don't think it would live here thru the Winter.. They are pricey too!

@Angie612 what zone are you in? I'm in zone 8 this palm has been thru numerous Snow's and been totally encased in ice twice!! I also have a palm in my front yard that's just a little bit smaller. I can tell you that if you were to get one you need to start with a pretty good sized one , to be sure it could survive.💘😍

@ShelleySnyder IDK what zone I'm in 😂 I live in the Piedmont North Carolina.. We don't have any here.. I've seen them as far from the coast as Rockingham but not any closer than that..
