No. Continental climates, at least ones like where I live in Central Indiana are usually but not always hard pressed to grow very many kinds of broad leaved evergreen plants(Outside of boxwoods). So why would you even wonder whether palms would be a possibility in continental climates?thats the epitome of being a “continental” climate I’ve never seen palm trees in a truly continental climate, have you?

I’ve heard of a fully grown Needle Palm in St. Louis that sometimes takes a lickin’ but has survived for decades, and there are some Sable and Trachy palms that are grown in Tennessee as well.

Tennessee isn't a continental climate except on the highest peaks of Mt. Le Conte and Clingman's Dome. However, I must say I've heard that about St. Louis too, and Toronto.

Generally, though, no palms in continental climates. In a way, it even seems like, generally, subtropical/mild temperate climates can support hardy palms, while continental climates can't.
