How about some things popular in deep south like Plumeria? I notice they seem to take much cold..unless you cross that threshold and then they totally collapse..nothing to come back from. But thats potted plants. I wonder how large woody trunked Plumeria did? Pachypodiums? Other than the palms,not much is said about the other tropicalia. Tree Euphorbia's? Tree Aloes? Don't see any mention of those that should thrive in the deep south of Texas even in normal years.

I keep hoping to make it back down there and photograph. It’s about a 6 hour drive though.

Mean,When you are down there..do you see Tree Euphorbs and Aloes? Most dry Texas gardens that I recall seeing skipped those in favor of Cereus and shrubby cactus. I would think in a warm climate that gets its rains in summer also would make them slam dunk show plants way down south. Or do deep south Texans go for a South Florida look over Souca?

I’ve seen in ground Euphorbia, Pachypodium, aloes, etc. The limiting factor down there is availability and income. All of that stuff existed in pockets before the freeze, you just have to hunt them down. If I were to make a trip alone I could probably spend days driving around finding unique yards/plantings. I’m not sure all of what has survived the 2021 freeze, I’ve seen a few surprises including the huge Beaucarnea making it through, but I’m doubting Euphorbia and Pachypodium.

Jubaea Chilensis on the San Antonio river walk. Jubaea aren’t common in Texas. They hate the humidity along the coast, and the cold wet winters of Central and North Texas eventually kill them.

Here are 3 different Brahea armata that survived in San Antonio. Posted on another forum. A little warmer, probably a low of 9-11°F
