yes a great exotic/"palmy" and "cold hardy" landscape can be achieved (especially in cooler climates) without the use of any palms at all. FWIW, here in nominal USDA zone 9 I'm very happy with my plantings (way too disorganized to call it a "garden")yuccas, nolinas, cordylines, eucalyptus, acacia, numerious different species of evergreen oaks, magnoias, Mexican pines etc., etc. and ALSO no palms, LOL.
the upper southern oregon coast
USDA zone 9a (Sunset zone 5)
DRY cool summers and WET cool winters
grow eucalyptus, banksias, telopeas, grevilleas, bottlebrush, mexican pines and oaks
