We are continually on the hunt for new cold hardy palms and hardy cycads. When we find an individual clone of hardy palm tree growing in a particularly cold climate, we do what all good plant nurseries do, we propagate it for our plant catalog! There is no reason why gardeners in Tennessee or Virginia cannot have a cold hardy palm tree in their landscape just like a Floridian. The hardiest palm trees belong to the genus Sabal (palmetto) and Trachycarpus (windmill palm). It also turns out that many Sago Palms (aka cycads) including Ceratozamia, Cycas, Dioon, Encephalartos, Macrozamia, and Zamia also have an amazing degree of winter hardiness. Add some tropicality to your temperate garden today with a hardy palm like sabal, trachycarpus, or hardy cycad from our online plant shop! Try pairing hardy palms with other tropical looking plants like colocasia, musa, zingiber and hedychium.
