The state of North Carolina has warm areas where you can grow cold hardy palms. Here is a list of palm trees that can grow in North Carolina:
California Fan Palm Tree – Zones 8b -11 (15 to 20 F)
Canary Island Date Palm Tree – Zones 8b -11 (15 to 20 F)
Chinese Fan Palm Tree – Zones 8a – 11 (10 to 15 F)
True Date Palm Tree – Zones 8b -11 (15 to 20 F)
European Fan Palm Tree – Zones 7b – 11 (5 to 10 F)
Mexican Fan Palm Tree – Zones 8b -11 (15 to 20 F)

Silver Saw Palmetto Palm Tree – Zones 7a – 11 (0 to 5 F)
I would love to see a photo or two of how your garden turns out! Palm trees are so beautiful! It's great that you can produce your own tropical paradise using palms in a large part of the USA!
