Brahea edulis - Guadalupe Palm

Brahea edulis - Guadalupe Palm (Brahea edulis - Guadalupe Palm)

This Guadalupe palm was just freshly pruned. This palm is very widely grown all over California. It's a very, very hardy palm able to withstand temps down to almost 18ºF/-8ºC. briefly without damage, however, it prefers dry conditions. Bougainvillea and Jacaranda tree in the background. Photo taken Dec. 13, 2010.

I know how this beautiful palm feels. I too prefer dry conditions. Unfortunately it has been well under -8 degrees here lately.
Merry Christmas Delonix.

That's darn cold! Hope it'll warm up soon for you. I've seen on the TV news all the snow in the UK which have been causing major problems.

We have a classic "Pineapple Express" (a very moist tropical flow of rain from Hawai'i) feeding into all of California with extreme amounts of rain -- to 20in/508mm already in some places (this may be the major drought buster). We haven't had too much yet in San Diego...but should have a lot of rain over the next 4 days.
