    Most of the palms they sell up there are probably sold as house plants. There are no palms that I know of that will withstand an Ohio winter. Here's some info I found:

    Cold Hardy Palms
    There's a tunnel at the end of the light...

    During my visit to OSU-ATI on July 19th, I was introduced to some very interesting experiments being done on campus. Outside the greenhouse headhouse are several banana trees ( on edible ) that been been grown, in Ohio's weather year round, for 3 years planted in the corner of the garden. The plants are partially protected by two exterior greenhouse walls.

    They are also working on some experiments with cold hardiness in various palms. This will be very interesting to see if they can make it happen. Only a few palms look promising.

    Hi Jeffsz. This is not going to help you much but I have three Royal Palms in my front yard, one of which is nearing sixty feet tall. You Ohio guys (I am an ex-Buckeye and OSU graduate) complain about raking leaves? You ought to try to haul a thirty pound palm frond to the curb for trash pickup in ninty degree weather. Life is tough here in South Florida.
