Hawaii can grow all kinds of palms (from FL, native and from CA) with no problem. Coconut palms look stressed in FL from all those cold snaps. It snowed in southern Florida TWICE! Hawaii only snows in the mountains. CA and FL are tied for different reasons (see my post in CA palms vs FL palms thread), but I am sad to see that palmettos and royals aren't too common in Cali, and there are only a few, sickly and short coconut palms in Cali.

Florida has more vigorous looking trees than California. Hawaii might be better yet, but I have not been there.

Because they're ugly.

I like tropical palms, so for me it's Hawaii, then some of Florida's palms. I do like certain desert palms, though.
