Discover Palm Trees That Can Be Grown In Michigan

Michigan is too cold to consider growing palm trees. With average temperatures ranging from 64-72°F (18-22°C) in July and 13 to -23°F (–5 to –11°C) in January, Michigan might not seem like the ideal location for palm trees. However, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the beauty of palm trees in your own space.


Consider purchasing palm trees in containers, allowing you to have them outside during warmer months and bring them indoors when the colder weather sets in. By doing so, you can enjoy these stunning indoor/outdoor palms all year round.


Despite Michigan's challenging climate, with the hottest temperature ever recorded at 112°F (44°C) and the lowest at –51°F (–46°C), there are still options for those interested in adding a tropical touch to their surroundings. Michigan falls within USDA zones 3a to 6b, meaning some palm tree varieties can thrive with the right care and attention.


Explore the possibilities of palm trees in Michigan and bring a touch of exotic elegance to your outdoor and indoor spaces.
