Palm Trees in Minnesota 

Since Minnesota is way too frigid for palm trees, I would suggest having potted palms so you can move them in and outside as the weather permits. Some incredible indoor/outdoor palms are: 

Areca Palm Tree – Zones 9a – 11 (20 to 25 F) 

Chinese Fan Palm Tree – Zones 8a – 11 (10 to 15 F) 

Kentia Palm Tree – Zones 9b – 11 (25 to 30 F) 

Lady Palm Tree – Zones 8b – 11 (15 to 20 F)
