I tend to remember the drought thing not being limited to any one or couple of species, however, I'm getting more and more forgetful, so, I defer to your recollection.
What I do remember was a webpage he had where he crammed a lot of data about his experiments in what I guess was Zone 5b or something.
It really does take an amount of insanity to grow palms any appreciable distance away where they are usually found without looking for them. I include myself in the indictment, of course.
And those of us who put seasonal shelters over our palms are even more insane. Logic would tell you to either keep such plants potted & move them inside in the winter - OR - don't grow them at all.
