Windmill Palm Cold Weather Care

Asked January 15, 2021, 7:05 PM EST

I live in Washington County. So far I have not wrapped the trunk of my Windmill Palm this winter. It is 7 feet tall and planted last May. Do I need to wrap it and when? I hear we have some colder weather coming.

Washington County Oregon

Consider wrapping your new palm this first year, though it generally won’t be needed. Here is a prior answer in this forum about windmill palms here: https://ask.extension.org/questions/630123
