There are some naturally dwarf palms: Allagoptera arenaria (Seashore palm) grows only 6 feet tall; Arenga engleri (Dwarf sugar palm) grows ten feet tall; Chamaedorea cataractarum (Cat palm) grows 6 feet tall; Chamaedorea metallica (Miniature fishtail palm) grows only 3 feet tall. Any of these will grow well in your gardening region. Enjoy!
