The Q&A Archives: fox tail palms

Question: our new fox tail palm got hit with frost twice in englewood fl,its about 8 ft and since it got hit the fans have turned brown, will it come back or is it to late to save? is their anything we can do to save it?? its only been planted for about a month,I still water it daily in hopes it will come back to its nice green color..thank you.

Answer: I think almost everyone in Florida is dealing with frost damaged plants this year. The best thing to do is to wait a few weeks just to be sure the winter weather is gone, then prune back all the damaged plants. Most will have suffered only cosmetic damage and will be able to replace dead fronds and branches later in the spring. Continue to give your palm good care and it should recover. Best wishes with your landscape!
