Which palm is more cold tolerant. The Triangle Palm or the Pineapple Palm? I live in Port Charlotte Florida and in Dec/January we sometimes get a day or so of COLD in the 35-40's

Answer from NGA

Triangle palm is hardy to 29F; Canary Island Date Palm (pineapple palm) is hardy to 15F. If cold hardiness is the main criteria, I'd go with the pineapple palm tree.
