Palms with REAL zone protections

How would you really know?
Cold hardy means something very different to those on the west coast.  I'm
in zone 6 in Pennsylvania but I won't buy a woody plant that isn't good for
-20F.  What's the good of buying a rhododendron or shade tree that you
nurture for ten years and then lose during a cold spell?  
I bought a canary date palm that was a Russian cultivar and it didn't
survive one of our mildest winters because it is cold AND wet here.

We propagate and offer a number of cold hardy palms.
