Question Where to buy California palm trees?

Does anyone know where I can buy a California palm or two? Actually, any cold hardy palm is fine. Thanks.

Be careful, some palms that will grow well in California don't do well in Texas. The Mexican fan palm is one. You can buy them anywhere. Calloway's always had them when I looked, they usually go half price at the end of summer.

The palm I'm looking for is the California fan palm (or any similar cold hardy palm). It's supposedly cold hardy to 15 degrees Fahrenheit. My uncle lives in Fort Worth and has had one in his backyard for over ten years without any problems.

We had Mediterranean fan palms and Chinese windmill palms, both of which are cold hardy down to 20 F without any issues.

Do they sell them around here? The only palms I can find are those Mexican palms that can't survive winter. Thanks.

Calloway's had some when I looked in the past, at the one on Upper Greenville. I've seen them before at Lowe's in NE Dallas as well.

There is a very large outdoor nursery where they sell only palm trees down between the Dallas Farmer's Market and First Presbyterian Church on the south side of downtown. They have every palm you can imagine there.
