Palm Trees in Missouri 

Missouri isn't a great state to have palm trees due to its colder winter temperatures. The main region you can attempt to develop palms is in zone 7, close to Cape Girardeau city. Remember, it takes just a single amazingly cool day to kill the majority of your palms. If you happen to see that a strong cold front is coming, furnish your trees with cold protection to aid with survival.
