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.

      Hi,
      I had this Sylvester palm transplanted about three weeks ago. I would like an opinion about how my tree is looking and any suggestions to help care for it. The yellow/brown leaves are making me nervous. 
      I had a large oak tree removed about six months before planting the palm. It was planted a few feet away from where the trunk of the oak was, but the oak tree was huge and roots were everywhere. Some even had to cut out when the palm was being transplanted 
      I have not used any fertilizers yet. I live in northern Florida and we have not had much rain lately. I’m still watering daily. 
       
      thank you for everyone’s help

      Hi there,
      let’s discuss the mechanics and limitations of crossbreeding palms to creat new hybrids.
      i found this video showcasing a lipstick palm hybrid and be keen to hear from you about your experiences on how this is done:
