Florida Palm Trees

Palm trees absolutely love warm and humid weather of Florida. Florida’s climate ranges from tropical to subtropical. I has warm winters and hot summers. The temperatures range from 65° to 70°F (18° to 21°C) in the north, and from 74° to 77°F (23° to 25°C) in the south. While this states gets hurricanes and tropical storms every year, tornadoes and waterspouts are very rare.

From June through September, you can expect extremely heavy rains. The warmest temperature recorded was 109°F (43°C) and the lowest was –2°F (–19°C). Florida USDA hardiness zones range from 8a to 11a.
