Hooked On Palms, We specialize in cold hardy palms, bananas, bamboo, and other exotic plants that can survive the winters in Western Oregon and Western Washington. I have personally been growing, and studying cold hardy palm trees since 1983. We pride ourselves on knowing and understanding the microclimates on the west coast and in the Pacific Northwest.
A lot of people move to Washington and Oregon from warmer climates and want to plant palm trees in their yards. With over 2,500 varieties of palms to choose from, in most cases people purchase the wrong varieties for the area they live in, and the palms don't survive. It is not uncommon for the big box stores to stock a palm like a Mexican fan palm in this area and they just will not survive most of our Pacific NW winters. We have studied many palm trees, and can Help you select a palm that will grow in your area.
Count on Hooked On Palms to help you bring a little bit of the tropics to your home.
