Default Any trees similar to palm trees that will survive a Michigan winter?

Hi. I was wondering if there were any palm trees or palm tree look a likes that can survive a Michigan winter (continuous freezing temperatures for a few days or more). I'm looking for a tree that would not require covering it during light snow.

A Windmill, Trachycarpus fortunei, is your best bet.

I have seen them unprotected in Vancouver and Victoria, Canada

I have got the same problem. Winters in my country can be really difficult and ,I suppose every, palm would die. Now, I decided to grow few in my house. It is the best option for now.

Tough up there for obvious reasons. There are some good indoor/outdoor palms that you can move in and out. Or build an enclosure over some hardy palms. Palm trees in Michigan
