Question Buying palm trees for Las Vegas

I would like to buy a couple of palms for my home but was curious the types I could get. I really have my eye on the Lipstick Palm and the King Palm, but would they be able to grow in this heat? My wife has an outdoor vegetable garden and I would like to plant something around the garden so it looks better. She has a bunch of herbs and fruit plants growing in the garden and it looks like a mess, so I want to create a hedge with lipstick palms. Is this possible with the lipstick palm?

Default I have the lipstick palm growing on my balcony

Its not in the best condition but the cleaning lady comes twice a week and she waters it then and I water it whenever I remember. So they can stand the heat but just water it more. I have other plants inside my apartment that do well too.

Question Okay thank you for the response,

Someone told me not to get the lipstick palm because it wouldn't do good in the Vegas heat and that the lipstick palm is very finicky, so I went with some desert palms and stuck with the California fan palm and canary island date palm. I am still debating to make a hedge out of areca palms, what do you think?

Default Palms for themed wedding's

I own a wedding chapel here in LasVegas and I have been wanting to add a tropical theme to my wedding themes menu I was thinking about getting some coconut palms in planters. My question is will they survive in planter's and do they grow fast. Would this be a good idea.

Default I own a bakery in Reno and the palms we have do fine...

We have a couple of kentia palms and christmas palms in the front entrance of our bakery. Last year we decided to go with a more tropical theme to get customers to walk in and it worked. The environment is much more pleasing and people want to come back to feel that clean tropical vibe from a bakery. The one suggestion I would do is to get planters that will not tip over and do not have a large lip. We had some customers using the planter to sit on because of the large lip it had. It tumbled the palm down, nothing happened to the palm but learned a lesson about planters...

It's not the heat you have to worry about in Las Vegas - it's the winter cold. Neither the Lipstick Palm or the Australian King Palm would stand a chance making it through a Las Vegas winter. For Las Vegas, the outer limit for a feather palm is the Queen Palm. And even those are extremely borderline.

Below is a Queen Palm growing in a backyard of Las Vegas, Nevada. It made it through another winter...but just barely. If you grow these, plant them near a warm southern-exposure wall.

My backyard is a paradise thanks to palm trees. Now I can go out and read my cosmo magazines while sipping lemonade in the sun, listening to my favorite pandora station. Its so relaxing. Stress relief at the core but I do have a question for my queen palms. How big do they get? I ordered them from Real palm trees about 6 months ago and have already shot up about 5 feet. What a great investment! My husband is now convinced that we now just need to escape in our back yard for a quick vacation getaway. Thank You Real Palm Trees I will be placing another order for those Figi Fans I was recommended by one of the staff Ty

I received my order a week ago and was pleasantly surprised myself. I just moved to Vegas and wanted a palm tree and got a bamboo palm. Im originally from Jersery so Im not use to palms. Tina, where do you and your husband vacation, it seems like you are in no rush!

Lipstick Palms are very nice. I know they want to have moist soil since they grow naturally in Costa Rica in mushy swamp soil I have one indoors it loves the humidity from the spray bottle and you must remember to fertilize them once every 3 or 4 months! Also keep them under shade from another tree if you plan to put it outdoors the leaves will burn quickly.
