Sago Palm That Froze This Winter


Anonymous added on March 18, 2011 | Answered

My two sago palms froze this winter. They are brownish yellow. I don't know if they will come back or if I need to trim off the dead parts, or do I just need to start over?

You will need to remove the yellow and brown fronds this spring, but only those as they will not come back. Just use sharp shears to do so. Do not remove green fronds. These articles will help you as well:

It is hard to say how well they will grow back. Sago palms do not deal well with lost fronds, but they have been known to recover fine.
