I've heard of Sago Palms living thru the winter in northern AR. Do they have to be brought in thru winter? Thanks, Ted T.

Sago palms are quite cold hardy and can tolerate temperatures below 20? F. If yours is in a container you can move it to a porch or patio to keep snowfall off. If yours is in the ground and you get snowfall, you might want to lay some pine boughs or other lightweight insulating material over the top to keep snow from packing down the fronds of your sago. Best wishes with your landscape!
