i have lived in NYC all my life (30 yrs) . i have been growing needle, windmill, and butia for a few years now.

i am relocating somewheres down the coast later this year. don't know when or where yet, depends on if my home sells.

anyway i know its going to be alittle warmer at least, whereever i go. but not as hot as south florida

where do you live and what do you successfully grow outdoors without protection?

i'm going somewhere between VA and Georgia, otherwise, TX. what kinds of palms can be grown in those places??

Coastal Virginia and points south along the coast, alot of palms can safely be grown... the futher south you go, the further inland as well. Coastal South Carolina and coastal Georgia, alot of palms will safely grow. I have seen palms in the "wild" in southeastern North Carolina and cental South Carolina. Southeastern North Carolina has alot of palms... including Cabbage palms. I think these can be found as far north as extreme southeastern Virginia. Not sure if it survived this winter, but there is someone about 30 miles west of me here in northeast Tennessee with huge Cabbage palms growing. I am sure they give them some protection at least. I am not sure how well they faired this harsh winter.
