We definitely need to see more from Hawaii. If you've got them, bring 'em!

So they fit in line with the populations of these places. Eucalyptus trees were imported, too, but to most people here they are quite a regular sight. It's just side effect of immigration. Eventually, they become naturalized.

The Palm Trees in Nevada look like the palms here in Southern Arizona in the HOT HOT Desert. The Nevada ones are planted, we also have the same palms as California and as shown in the picture. We also have cactus which is grown in the wild all over the desert.

Florida
South Carolina
I think even North Carolina
Virgina Beach has some but from what I have seen they look terrible
Arkansas can grow some but I dont think there are really any towns that do.
They have some in Little Rock but they are very short and hardly noticable. More like a bush than a tree.

Southwest Michigan has palm trees - planted and potted for the summer only. They love them on the lake shore at South Haven.

Palm trees can grow pretty much anywhere. Of course they are native only to tropical areas but they can be grown, as Steve-o correctly pointed out, as far north as the Great Lakes. Chicago even has lined its beaches on Lake Michigan with palm trees. Here in St. Louis, a few palm trees exist on the SLU campus. Of course, since STL and Chitown are both the Midwest, palm trees are still pretty scarce. They are planted, not native. Palm trees are native to California, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and of course, Florida. I would imagine that Virginia has them too. They are mainly only native to coastal areas I think. I'm sure the Northeast has to have them since there is ocean there and possibly the Pacific Northwest.
