Go ahead call us crazy, tell us we have lost our minds. They say how can you live in Ohio and own a palm tree? Well knuckleheads I have crunched the numbers, and it turns out it can be done. After hours of research we have found the perfect palm “The Windmill Palm” Scientific name: Trachycarpus fortunei. One might ask, what’s so special about this palm? I will tell you, this palm… this exact palm can tolerate temperatures down to 5-10F. Listen I know it can get colder than that in Toledo, and I have that covered. We will be also purchasing a heat rope we can turn on with the flick of a switch. We will be able to heat this baby up when temperatures aren’t ideal, making this palm feel right at home.
So next time you come to the nest you can find me swinging on a hammock below my little palm tree. I will be all oiled up, sipping a Pina Colada, and sporting a killer tan.
