Yes, we can grow palms up here!

Not everyone realizes that there are several species of palms that survive and flourish in our climate in the Seattle area and all over the Pacific Northwest.  Growing these palms adds a bit of the tropics to our mountain vistas, and you won’t find a group more devoted to testing the limits of a palm’s tolerance for cold and wet conditions than the folks at the Northwest Palms Discussion Board.  Whether you need tips on how to plant that new Trachycarpus or just want to participate in a discussion about palm fossils found on Vancouver Island, this site is an awesome resource for botanists, garden experts, and newbies alike.
