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.

      I recently had the pleasure of driving through Brookings, OR on my way back home to Portland and decided to snap a few pictures.
      Please add some of your own if you also drove through! I unfortunately didn’t have all the time in the world so I didn’t get that many pictures. Hopefully I can go down and give it a thorough inspection.
      Feel free to correct my labeling  
      Enjoy!

      Hi everybody!
      I have a serious problem with germination of the coconuts. Many coconuts start to rot during the germination (some seedlings survive only). The surface of the coconuts and the embryo are covered with the white fuzzy / powder mold. I realize that the germination of the coconuts from the supermarkets is often associated with a high risk of failure, but if it is possible, I would at least want to minimize the formation of the molds on the coconuts. Since I grow the coconut palms indoor (I have a large south window where I grow my coconut palms for several years), I would like to use some natural (not chemical) fungicides. So far, I've only tried potassium permanganate, but it didn't help. What other natural fungicide do you recommend? I read on the internet that some natural products can be effective, such as: cinnamon, hydrogen peroxide, ethanol (short-term action only), seasalt water (coconut palms tolerate it highly), baking soda and liquid grapefruit seed extract (GSE). At the moment I don't have the opportunity to experiment with all the possibilities, so to make my situation easier, I want to ask you: Which natural product has the best fungicidal effects to kill the white fuzzy / powder molds?
      Thank you!
      Sincerely,
      Miroslav

      I got a Bottle Palm today at Walmart. I plan to keep it potted for its whole life. I understand these grow fairly slow so these would make for a good potted palm. I grabbed the largest one they had. Price was $16.98. During summer it will be outside, i have seen conflicting things about sunlight. Should i keep it in shade or in full sun? I hear these love moist but well draining soil, which will be taken care of. Anything else i should know?
