here are some of my personal palm trees in my yard. A few years ago i bought two windmill palms from a nursery joe told me about in langley BC, now im hooked! I have several small windmill palms, one medium sized windmill with the top of the fronds reaching about 5 feet and a beautiful mediterranean fan palm. I've heard of mexican fan palms surviving in vancouver, im wondering if i could pull one off in the abbotsford area with some care ? any ideas of any other varieties to try ?
