In the northern Delaware public landscape, there are Recurvifolias planted here and there. There was a big thicket of them at a local credit union. The two back-to-back vortex winters knocked out a third of the thicket! I just have the one, but it made it through both of those winters okay. Mine is perhaps a little more out of the wind than those at the credit union.
If you can find one, go for it! They're very palmy looking.
