Re: List of 7b palms?

I probably will not add much to what everyone else has suggested except keep in mind Sabal minors are not all created equal. I particularly like the form/selection 'Hatteras' (or Hatteras blue), it is quite cold hardy through zone 7, grows quicker than any other minor I have tried and gets large giving a much different effect than say typical minor. Mine is 8 foot tall with huge leaves and is my favorite palm. Also a type called 'Blountstown' is quite dwarf. Of course needle palm is great. And I have found 'Bulgaria' and 'Taylor' forms of windmill palm to be particularly cold hardy as well as Trachycarpus nanus. Sabal birmingham and S.tamaulipas are also good.
