: Sounds like bud rot . In the future,
: after a wet winter it may not be a bad
: idea to mix up some fungicide to pour
: down the trunk (where the new fronds
: emerge). I've used Consan 20 in the
: past and had some luck saving a
: Windmill Palm. Not sure if you can even
: buy that anymore but any fungicide is
: better than none at all. Sadly, this
: late in the game, yours are probably
: done for. There's no harm in waiting a
: little longer to see if you spot some
: new growth though. Good luck.

: I have 2 Large Mexican fans that I
: planted 5 years. The Trunks ara about 4
: ft tall and 18" Diameter at base.
: The last few years I have been mulching
: very heavily for winter but not
: covering, they survived very well. This
: winter they got hammered with all the
: snow. All brown leaves. I cut them all
: off however there were still some in
: the center that had not come out of the
: trunk. They have shown no sign of
: conimg back so I pulled on the center
: and it came out very wet and the end of
: the stem was white.
: Are they dead or is there a chance they
: will come back?
