Who doesn't think of vacation, white sand beaches and tropical islands when it comes to palm trees?
I see palm trees every day since I moved to Florida, and believe me or not - I am still fascinated and I could take pictures of them all day long!
Being able to grow my very own palm trees makes me enjoy this place on earth even more.
There are so many different species of palm trees in the world and the good news is: Almost all of them grow in Florida!
Florida has five different hardiness zones (according to USDA). You can look up the hardiness zone for your area on the USDA website.
Please keep in mind that every palm tree species is different when it comes to weather conditions. Most palm trees grow in tropical, subtropical and warm temperate climates. There are species that tolerate cold weather better than other. Species that are sensitive to cold weather are probably better to be planted on the south or west side of a building, since most cold fronts in Florida are coming from the north or northeast. Therefore, they are a little bit better protected.
