None. You should be looking at Trachycarpus, needle palm, Sabal minor, maybe Serenoa repens.

But I've been told that bottle palms are amenable to pot growing. You will have to keep it indoors during winter.

Nolina longfolia - hardy in my z7b. Check google pics.  Not a palm, beargrass. But looks somewhat similar, trunkwise.

I’m assuming it doesn’t take moisture well and that’s why it’s not seen here in the East?

The poster said his neighbor had one in Virginia. Mine came from North Carolina where it has been successfully grown for quite some time.  It grows naturally in a  region of Mexico not considered desert. My two cents.

      Does anyone know what these agaves are? I thought they were both Agave americana but now I think these might both be different species. I’ll need to get a better picture of the variegated one tomorrow.

      Mi primer post lo quiero dedicar a este importante tema, se trata de la especie Corypha taliera (Extinta es su hábitat natural),  nativa de Myanmar (Birmania)y la región bengalí de la India y Bangladesh y que dentro de sus características podemos destacar que su inflorescencia son apicales (el ápice vegetativo se transforma en yema floral) por lo que muere después de su única floración. 
      En el Jardín Botánico de Cienfuegos se cuenta con tres individuos plantados en 1970 y que se encuentran en fase terminal (Fin de fructificación) de los cuales se han colectado una gran cantidad de semillas y se trabaja en su reproducción en vivero además del monitoreo mensual de la regeneración natural que posee cada individuo en un radio reducido de 5 m2. En las fotos se puede apreciar su enorme inflorescencia y la presencia de algunos frutos.

      Hello all! Just. Question. I am in the Phoenix area and last year I planted a beautiful royal palm. I noticed the base of the trunk was starting to Crack. My instincts were telling me that it's normal since the trunk is expanding. Today for a moment I thought, could this be sun damage? It is planted on an Eastern exposure in-between two homes. Hopefully it's normal and she is just getting chunky! Thank you for your time.
