      I would like to try some marginal palms in S.E. Houston. The climate for the past 25 years (post 1989) has been mostly cool 9b with a few 9a and 10a winters. High temperatures can be cool for a week or more with highs of 50 but average in the 60s with a few 70s. The soil is clay with 50 inches or rain per year. Here are some that I am considering. The absolute winter low minimums are probably similar to about midway between Ocala and Orlando but with average lower winter maximums. New Orleans is about as close to my climate as any city.
