How far north do you stop seeing Butias?

I was just thinking about how we've spent a lot of time and posts discussing how far north you find palms like sabal minor and palmetto. Though I know there has been some talk about Butia, I'm curious to know how far north you've seen them growing in different parts of the country. (or world, I suppose)
The farthest north I've seen them growing personally is at about 33.9N about 6.5 miles Northwest of Idabel OK , at a farm house on the North side of HWY 70.
That is about the same latitude as Marietta GA, but in a very rural area. I believe it was zone 8a in the most recent USDA maps.
