Rhapidophyllum in the doesn't care about a little snow

That's what we got last night: a little snow. Just the perfect amount for the garden.

Rhapidophyllum is the hardiest palm here in zone 7a or 7b or even into 6. The excellent specimen of a SE US native palm live comfortably here in the Asian Collection. The buds in the bottom picture belong to Magnolia denudata, a lovely early Magnolia that regularly is blasted by late frosts. We were lucky the last two years and I have every confidence we'll have another great display this spring. Which is just a bit over two months away so far as this Magnolia is concerned.
