I haven't been as lucky.
Within a 5 mile radius of my house, the most interesting things I've found are:
Monkey Puzzle, about 15 feet tall. Status: Removed by owner.
Med Fan Palm, 1-gallon size. Status: Survived one winter, removed by owner.
Various Opuntia plantings. Status: Good.
Besides what I'm growing, the closest in-ground palms I am aware of are Ron's in Arden. And that's beyond the 5 mile radius.
Commercial landscaping, when they want a "Southwesty" feel, go with Yucca recurvifolia with white pebble mulch. None of them try palms, and I can't argue why they should. You can't really have palms here out in the open, unprotected. Needles, maybe. But Sabals get beat up. Trachies are a total no-go in the open. But Yuccas - even eastern varieties - are something that's leafy and green all year. Plus, they are very durable and tolerate neglect once established. From a business point of view, you can't beat that in a 7a environment.
