Pindo and Mediterranean Fan Palms do great in central Texas. They love the heat and take the cold just fine. We stay away from ever using Mexican Fan Palms that grow too fast and often turn yellow in the winter. The palms we use are tasteful and a bit conservative and go great in any poolscape. Other plants like Esperanza, Pride of Barbados, Red Yuccas, Mountain Laurels, and others can be added to get a variety of tropical or Xeriscape type looks.
