Furthest north without yearly protection, seen in the landscaping other than by hardy palm people?

In my travels, I would say from the road (not from how far north they can be grown):
North Carolina- going east- Fayetteville.
South Carolina- going east on I20 from GA- immediately in Aiken.
going south from NC- Florence.
Georgia- going south- Macon.
going east from Atlanta- Thomson.
Alabama- going south- Montgomery.
Mississippi- going south- Meridian.
Louisiana- only traveled I-10 so right at the MS border.
I have never seen a commercially-planted Butia in TX, AR, OK, TN or VA even though I know they obviously are used either widely (VA Beach/SE TX) or occasionally or as experiments.
