Bismarck palms are grown throughout the tropics, subtropics and favor temperate microclimates. They are planted quite widely in many parts of the world such Florida, southern California and parts of Arizona U.S., Indonesia and Australia. Bismarck palms will suffer from cold damage but they quickly recover. The green variety is more cold sensitive than is the silver-gray variety. The green ones are damaged at 32°F (0°), but the silver-gray ones will tolerate 28°F (-3°C) and will recover from 23°F (-6°C). While they tolerate some drought, they thrive in areas with adequate rainfall. Because of their massive crowns, they need plenty of room in a landscape area.
