I would love to find a mule palm to add to my collection. I'm aware that Mules are somewhat rare and expensive. Before I make the investment, I would like to know if the Mule would need winter protection in my rural zone 8a climate(Sumter, SC). I understand the need to allow the palm to reach a viable size before planting outdoors. After living with two Mexican Fan palms whose fronds are brown and unsightly during winter, I only want palms that are evergreen. I'm also interested in feedback concerning the Crete Island Date palm, which I've been advised is fully cold hardy in my zone, unlike the Canary Island Date palm.
