I bought a Finca with absolutely nothing growing on it's land Carol, ompletely bare land, so all the Palms and Trees I have planted and those I will plant in the future, are only small at the moment Carol, so not suitable for a while yet, Im afraid.
I have many stone walls tho which Im only just starting to use as supports. I had worried about temperatures here and had been keeping everything cosseted , but, Im more than confident now everything will survive without any protection. I was a little concerned at first but at about 1100 feet above sea level, min Winter temp at night about 55º lowest and max day in summer temp summer up to 90º ( sometimes hotter, but not for too long )
I dont think my temperatures are too different from yours, so Ive become more confident they will be ok. They have all been outside for 4 years now but under shade cloth. Shade is my only problem
We dont get nearly as much rain here however, but as its a small island, humidity is high, especially in the eve.
ive just planted out a H lauterbachii and a H ciliata at the base of walls.....vamos a ver
