    desert willow is normally NOT evergreen especially in colder climates but a beautiful tree. arbutus "marina" is beautiful but one of the more tender "strawberry" trees. arbutus unedo and the native a. menziesii/madrone would likely be hardier plants. certainly have seen madrone growing at around 4000' in the "snow zone" of the Siskiyou mtns. of southern Oregon and northern California. trochodendron may be hardy to cold but it needs shade and moisture even here on the Oregon coast so may need lots of care to survive where you are. raphidiophyllum histrix is a temperate south American plant which has not much of a track record in north America so it's performance in cold dry climates is really unknown. araucaria araucana the "monkey puzzle tree" from Chile and Argentina grows in the Andes and has grown for many years in the cold mountain climate of Weed, California and might be worth seeking out. cupressus arizonica on your list is a conifer (just like the araucaria I mentioned) and not a broad-leaf tree.
