Miramar is in USDA Hardiness Zone 10b.
The ample rainfall, high humidity and 250 average warm days per year are comparable to a semi-tropical climate. Wintertime is mild to warm throughout Broward County, with lows ranging from about 25° F to 40° F. The highest rainfall occurs in the summer months.
Of course, using the USDA maps will only tell you where a plant should survive the winter. There are a variety of other factors that will influence the ideal palm trees for your unique climate.
Even within two or three feet, a microclimate may cause a small area to be warmer or colder, wetter or drier, or more or less prone to frosts than the area around it. It’s important to work with a reputable nursery to be sure the palms you choose will flourish in your environment.
