well, both the palm and the "Norfolk pine" actually come from insular oceanic climates with relatively moderate climates and are not really "heat demanding" plants per se. for that matter the maples and sycamores in the first picture are in nature and in cultivation "mesic" water demanding plants and may only tolerate high heat with water during the summer.
