I've lived in Albuquerque for 4 winters now and these have all been here since then so they have survived a few and still going.

In the summer months Denver Parks and Rec. has started planting Date Palms, and California fan palms in several locations..Washington Park has a few,Cherry Creek drive North--just south of Alameda had a twelve foot date palm there until Oct. Pinecrest Park in Southwest Denver has had a date Palm the past two summers..They are planted around May 31-and pulled out of the ground about early to mid October...17th Street Towers downtown always has some pretty mature and large container palms during summer months as well..

If they used Windmill fan palms, they could put them out in March and leave them until late November.
