We saw the Cretan native Phoenix theophrasti during our 2010 expedition to the airport. With rumors of potential winter hardiness, we thought we'd give this a shot and, since they came up so well from seed, we have some extras to share. Reportedly, the grey-green leaf Phoenix theophrasti is one of the hardiest of the feather palms....we'll find out together.
