Best Palm Tree for Houston, TX"We live in the Houston, Texas area. Nine years ago, after losing all four well established queen palms and two pygmy date palms as a result of two days of below freezing temperatures, we set out to find a palm tree that would withstand the occasional freeze we see every couple years during the winter months. Our research led us to mule palms from Moultrie Palms. After several phone calls with Elaine and Frank we purchased three very small trees and had them shipped to us in a box. Our first three mule palms grew rapidly so we ordered two more a couple years later. Those did well so we ordered two more in late spring 2017. In January of 2018 we had a major ice storm in Houston that covered every square inch of our seven mule palms with a thick coating of ice, including the two that were very young and had only been in the ground for about eight months. We did our best to knock off as much ice as we could from all the palms but the majority of the fronds and trunks of the trees were covered for well over 24 hours before the ice slowly began to melt. We knew if we were going to lose our mule palms this weather event would likely be the culprit. 18 months later we are pleased to report that all seven mule palms are healthy and thriving. Our oldest mule palms are 20' to 25' tall and the youngest ones are already 8'. If you live in the Houston area and want a palm tree that can handle below freezing temperatures look no further than the mule palms from Moultrie Palms. Thank you Elaine and Frank!"

All we can say is, WOW"WOW - who knew that a search for cold hearty palms would yield such wonderful new friendships, a world of new knowledge and 10 gorgeous mule palm trees. Just watching them from our birdcage glisten in the early morning sunshine and wave at us in the gently afternoon breezes gives us no end of pleasure. Thank you Frank and Elaine for your great expertise and for the way you so care for your mules and so care about your customers. We Love You Guys, Gary and Karen"
