Default What palm trees do good in our climate?

I am interested in buying a palm tree that I could just leave outside throughout the year... Is there any tropical palm tree that can survive the harsh heat and winds? Also what about indoor palms, what does it take to keep a palms and plants alive indoors...

Default NW NM Palm Tree

Hello Im in NW NM and I bought Washingtonia Robusta palm tree seeds but i am im Zone 5b I was woundering if they could grow in this climate? I started to sow 7 of the seeds on Aug 31, 2011 and they sprouted on Sept 12, 2011. I have a long way to go for them to mature with alot of winter protection im sure they will survive.

Well I think you really cant leave a palm unprotected in NM maybe in Southern NM like Roswell Almogordo, Las Crusis Deming places like that. other thank that I have a Washingtonia Robusta here in NW NM and in winter I protect it alot! With burlap christmas lights and bubble wrap and had it in ground for 2 years no doing good.

Default The Palm Tree Blues...

Growing palms, even in extreme southern New Mexico, is difficult. They can do fine for a few years, up until the next Blue Norther sweeps down and strikes, leaving palm fronds looking like fried green tomatoes.

In the photo below, what appears to be California fan palms are suffering freeze burn, though they will very likely recover:

Hello all Palm tree lovers! I just got a new swimming pool and its my birthday coming up and I wanted to decorate my new trendy backyard with beautiful green palm trees of all different kinds. I have all of my family coming from across the nation to celebrate with cake! Anyways I needed some help with designing and carefully selecting the perfect palms and where to place them from an experienced palm tree expert or landscaper to make my yard turn into a tropical paradise for years to come. Just ordered 40 trees in total from this site and was able to gain a format for which to place them thanks to the excellent professional customer service I am now on my way to finishing up for the guests I will post some pictures up when the job is finished and al of my neighbors will be envious of my new look. Thank you Real palm trees for making the impossible into reality.

What palm tree would be best and survive in Albuquerque would canary palms be a good fit? would they grow big? also how long would it take to grow.furthermore my reletives also live here in Albuquerque and are looking for palms for inside there home.so get back to me about what would be a perfect fit for a palm at home
