Hi, I am new to this forum and have a question about palms. Obviously I am new to this "palms" world as I recently found out on Utube where people posted their videos of palms trees that thrive in Vancouver. What a shock to me ! I know Vancouver is warmer than Toronto but never spent time to check out the hardiness zones. So I spent a couple of hours to find out what hardiness zones for southern Ontario, Toronto in particular. Depending on which websites I used, Toronto seems to be in the 6a or a split between 6a & 6b (St Catharines is 7a, Windsor 6b or 7a). I never see any outdoor palms in Toronto, perhaps I rarely paid attention to it. My question is: Could I grow sabal palms (state tree of Florida) or any outdoor palms in my backyard (6a or 6b), AWAY from the wall ? My backyard is also windy ! Also, it's a record warm this winter, I did not shovel snow at all this winter, not even once ! Thank you ! Oh, forgot to mention, my backyard faces South with full sun exposure, much warmer than the front of the house.
