It's not a palm tree but Oklahoma does have one native palm, the dwarf palmetto.

Here's an interesting video about the dwarf palmetto in southeastern Oklahoma.

Utah has Washingtonia Filifera in St George only, there are no palm trees in the entire state of Colorado

There are also no Palm Trees in Oklahoma, closest reliable palms to OK are in Austin, TX

There are some palm trees in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. They are usually either Sabal Palmettos or Texas Sabals which are more tolerant to cold weather than other palm trees.

That is incorrect. In southeast Oklahoma and southern Arkansas, Sabal minor grows. A very recent post stated that.

I wasn't sure about Colorado.

I have been to Dallas more than once and haven't seen any palms, and hadn't seen any the various times I've been to OK either

It grows in the forests of the southeasternmost county, I never said they liked the streets of downtown Tulsa.

The dwarf palmetto, Sabal minor, reaches the northwestern limit of its geographic range in McCurtain County, Oklahoma, where it is critically imperiled. We determined that S. minor was more widespread than previously reported; 28 new localities were identified.

I don't believe there are any palms native to New Mexico.

Colorado definitely does not have any palms. And there are no native palms in New Mexico but southern New Mexico has plenty of palm trees around .
