I'm guessing they were windmill palms? Look like this...?


They are able to take very cold temperatures.

I'd say either South Florida (from Palm Beach County down) or Southern California (from LA County to San Diego County.)

Don't know which one of those two. I've lived in both, and it has to be a fairly close call...

Miami definitely has more than LA. Palms are not even native to LA. Miami also has a Tropical climate capable of supporting more species of palms then the mediterranean climate of SoCal.

Miami's climate is not Tropical, it is Sub Tropical, there is a big difference.

No, South Florida's climate is definitely tropical. Most of the rest of Florida does have a humid subtropical climate. I could pull up any number of sources that would prove this.
