Since I don't live in a subtropical climate, it would be hard for me to comment intelligently on some of these palms... but I was not aware that Brahea edulis performed that well in such a climate. Brahea armata, for that matter, either. I know some have gotten to to survive, but seems unlikely that they would with in climates where these other ones would.Palmbob 16:55, 22 July 2007 (PDT)
