Types of Hardy Palm

From Sabal Minor, to Phoenix Palms we carry some of the best and most unuual hardy palms in Niagara. These hardy palm trees are very slow growing evergreens. That means you must protect them in winter to protect the existing foliage. Experience has shown that several Sabal Minor’s with no winter protection survived, but lost all their existing foliage, new leaves appeared by mid-summer. The best method is to build a protective covering of plastic over them. Click the picture to learn more!
