Im not big on palms (more cacti), but I believe people have gotten Chinese fan palms and needle palms to thrive here.

I dont even know what species were in the pics I took, but they seem to be doing good.

Why doesn't Paris and London have palms when winters are mild? (Rarely below freezing or snow)?

What is the thick, short palm tree called? I love them!

I think it would be interesting to post states that have NATIVE palms. The list would probably drop to 2 (CA and FL). lol

the pic of the palm in Illinois is a windmill palm, it needs protection to survive a winter over there, a needle palm which dosent grow a trunk but is more like a big bush would probably need protection for a few years then it might survive on its own--MAYBE, they are tough though.

the CALIFORNIA Fan Palm IS native to Ca, it just native to the desert regions and not the coastal regions where you find most of them.

And I'd be willing to assume the FLORIDA Royal Palm is native to that state as well.
