Default Buying palm trees for New York

I live in New York and I wanted to see if I can grow a palm tree or two in and outside my house. What does any one recommend getting. I am new to this palm thing and its really for an experiment of mine. I like palm trees and would like to see some in my house....

Thank you very much

Well if this is going outside you definetely will need a cold hardy species. The Trachycarpus family all do well in the cold. Butia Capitata something like that Jelly Palm is also cold hardy. The cabbage palm, Needle palm, Saw palmetto, European fan palm. These are just a few you can take a look at. But if you are looking for indoor palm to keep in new york you can pretty much keep most palm indoors as long as you provide it with the few necessities.

Thumbs up I have a banana tree that froze and then came back to life

I couldnt believe it, i was throwing away a banana tree that froze because I must have left it outside on the porch and I was going to get to it but I threw it in like a utility closet for outside the porch and forget it had been there for almost a month. I then found it with two leave sprouting out. I still cant believe how that is possible. I read on some other palm website that the banana palm grows from the ground or from the roots, so as long as the roots dont freeze the banana palm tree will grow back.

Default Having palm trees inside is easy

Its having them outside that really gets annoying. Bringing them in and out sometimes I forget and they might spend a night outside in the cold. Not a good thing, if you know what I mean
