Public Golf Courses Near Downtown Charleston, South Carolina | LIVESTRONG.COM
Take a look at the picture on this article, of a golf course in Charleston. I knew they could grow in SoCal, Phoenix and parts of Texas, but other than that, I thought anywhere else in the continental US outside Florida would be too cold for them! Guess I was wrong!

Ah, I see, thanks for that. Royal Palms do survive in Palm Springs (albeit growing slowly due to the dry weather and chilly winters), but I'm sure that the winters of Nevada and South Carolina would kill them outright.

LOL, that golf course is not in Charleston. They used a generic golf course photo. There are no Royal Palms anywhere near Charleston.

I'm more surprised by this photo. Not sure what kind of palm trees, but this locale has avg Jan temps of 55/29F. The avg Jan night goes below freezing. Also, the average extreme winter min temp is 17.7F, and just in Jan of 2010 this place went down to 7F. These palms were there before that temp and survived and look flourishing to me. The photo shown was taken in August of 2011, well after the 7F temperature. Those look nice and must be some hardy palm trees. Not only that these palms are all over the place in this town.

Guess the town?

Those are Mexican Fan Palms, quite hardy. I'm guessing somewhere in southern Utah or New Mexico.

Washingtonia's are great in that because of their fast growth they can easily replace a whole crown of frost damaged fronds as soon as the weather warms up...
