When do you usually see the first Palm tree like when heading south from flagstaff to Phoenix or going from Albuquerque to Las cruces or even from Atlanta to Tallahassee? It's always awesome to know that you are crossing to the next growing zone where Palm trees can be planted

On this coast there are palm trees all the way into Canada. Not as many, or as many varieties, as in warmer areas, but palm trees just aren't that uncommon.

Butchart Gardens, British Columbia, Canada:

On I-15, the first palms are in St George, UT (near the AZ border), on I-17, first palms are in Camp Verde, AZ, and on I-25, the first palms are in Truth or Consequences, but Hatch has more than ToC

On I-75 South of Metro Atlanta it's going to be around Macon, but those are planted / cultivated. You will not see natural plam trees until you get near the Florida border at Valdosta, or down along the Georgia coast.

The Carolina coasts has palm trees. South Georgia, Houston have them. Then Florida has them everywhere.

Austin and San Antonio have an abundance of palm trees as well although they are not as common as areas in Houston and along the Gulf Coast. In Dallas/Fort Worth only a few varieties exist (such as european fan Palms and sabal palms) because of the climate.
