Northern Palm Trees

Palm trees were once thought to be suitable for planting only in tropical enviroments, however, several cold hardy palm trees grow in Northern States where snows fall all during the winter. Much of the information regarding palm tree hardiness that is published in books, magazine articles, and Internet websites is extremely conservative, perhaps because the testing for national cold hardiness is of a very recent origin.
