Ask Dr. Hort: caring for frost-damaged Christmas Palms
By Greg Charles, Special to the Times
In Print: Saturday, August 21, 2010
St. Petersburg Times, St. Petersburg, Florida

Christmas Palms (adonidias) still show signs of freeze damageQ: Our Christmas palms took a pretty hard hit this past winter. They seem to have survived, but new growth seems to have changed. New fronds that normally came in as spears to several feet in length and then opened are now coming out an inch or two and coming out opened and a bit deformed. Thank you for any help you can offer.
John Lovitz, Clearwater

A: The winter that wiped out Christmas palms is still showing its ugly face. The freezing temperatures damaged the bud or growing point that houses many fronds in their juvenile state. For many palms, the entire bud was damaged, resulting in the death of the plant. In your case, certain infant fronds were damaged, but fortunately not the entire bud, resulting in random mishaped fronds. Each new frond should look better than the last. Now is the time to fertilize with a micronutrient mix; I suggest SA Essential Minor L, available at your local garden center. The new growth will be in immediate need of iron, manganese, boron and zinc, which a quality micronutrient fertilizer will provide.

When fertilizing palms the fertilizer should be broadcast in a circle around the palm, extending out to the drip line. This method is more effective and safer than punching holes for the fertilizer. The University of Florida recommends using an 8-2-12 + 4%mg fertilizer.

Under the Pinellas County Fertilizer Ordinance that is now in effect, fertilizers containing nitrogen or phosphorus cannot be applied to landscapes between June 1 and September 30. You could apply a potassium only fertilizer, such as a 0-0-16 analysis now, then apply the 8-2-12+ 4%Mg in November, February and May. This should meet the nutritional requirements of the palm adequately while complying with the fertilizer ordinance.

To correct a manganese deficiency (commonly called frizzle top) apply manganese sulfate to the soil. Suggested application rates vary from 8 ounces for a very small palm to 8 pounds for a very large palm growing in alkaline soil. You might arrive at an application rate by estimating about ½ pound of manganese sulfate per inch of trunk diameter up to about 5 pounds. Repeat applications can be made at 2 to 3 month intervals.

Water in any fertilizer materials (complete fertilizer, manganese, etc.) after application.
