In the garden

Q I love palm trees and have noticed that the coastal areas of France and Italy have beautiful palms even though they are as much as 8 degrees farther north than this part of Arkansas. Are there any varieties of palms that could survive in the Clinton (Van Buren County) area of Arkansas, or does the Mediterranean climate make latitude less of a factor?
