Tennessee Fruit Trees, Nut Trees and Shade Trees
Several cold hardy palm trees like Windmill palm trees can be successfully grown in Tennessee gardens to add that tropical look to a backyard patio or pool. The Windmill palm is very cold hardy and has survived cold winters in Northern States such as Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. The Needle palm tree is also very cold hardy and has been grown in Kentucky, Michigan and West Virginia. Needle palm trees have been growing in the Brooklyn, New York Botanical Garden for several decades, along with other New York successful plantings of Windmill palm trees.
