Suggestion for a medium height palm tree for Zone 9 N. California


I'm removing an ugly yucca tree from a corner of my yard and would like to grow a palm tree at that corner and some shrubs around the stump. I really like the look of the Coconut palms you get in warmer climates but I don't think that would do well here.

I'm looking for a palm tree that doesn't get too tall max maybe 15-20ft at the very most. Does anyone have any suggestion?

Are you using USDA zones? Are you away from the water? I'm in a zone 9 now, but it's very different from when I lived on the SF Peninsula.

"A plant's performance is governed by the total climate: length of growing season, timing and amount of rainfall, winter lows, summer highs, wind, and humidity.
Sunset's climate zone maps take all these factors into account, unlike the familiar hardiness zone maps devised by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which divides most of North America into zones based strictly on winter lows.
The U.S.D.A. maps tell you only where a plant may survive the winter; our climate zone maps let you see where that plant will thrive year-round.
Sunset's Climate Zones consider temperature as well as other important factors. . ."

What appeals to you? I like Queen palms. http://www.calpalms.com/products.asp
