You need to be in the valley or possibly Corpus or Galveston to even try coconuts. And even then, no gaurenteed success. Although I have seen pics of fairly large ones in the valley. Stick with Queen palms for your "marginal" palm for Austin. At least they will make it a good number of years. Cocos, no chance unless you are going to construct with some type dome over it like BobbyinNY is doing.
