The discussion that Lucas West Arkansas started on Palmetto hardiness was really interesting to me and really isn't feasible without a zone like yours or better and that's why I wanted to know if your growing Brazoria palmetto.
Ive tried it here and it performed like Chinesis , die back every winter until it died out but I never protected it except for mulch.
(Jim from De made a good comment that the Brazoria palm can be variable and that's certainly true)
Ive not used the two city comparison chart
in quite a while but you guys could almost be climate twins. http://www.bestplaces.net/compare-cities/waldron_ar/winston-salem_nc/climate
I believe he could grow what your growing. Also, have you tried Sabal Mexicana?
btw - nice plants, thank for sharing
