Palm trees aren't something that usually come to mind when people think of Arizona trees or plants. Usually, palm trees bring on thoughts of Hawaii - my home state, or Florida and California where the weather is usually cconducive to things growing!
I say "growing" because most things that survive in the dessert require little water and can take the heat! The rest - well they just don't grow! Surprisingly - palm trees can hold up and are often seen all around Arizona! I took this photo not too long ago - how hot would you venture to gues sit was this day as I sat under the beautiful palm tree looking up into the sky?
