The palm family, Arecaceae or Palmae, includes about 2.400 species, native to warm climates of the world, ranging from delicate tropical species to cold hardy palms. Some palms can be planted outdoors in Central Europe and stand hard freezes, well below -10 ºC (14 F). Those who live in Mediterranean countries can grow a larger number of species outdoors. Some growers in coastal Southern Europe are now raising outdoor collections of palms containing more than 100 species.
