It should do fine in your region. The sago palm should be outdoors in partial shade (with three or more hours of sunlight a day) and protected from the wind. The sago is an extremely hardy plant and can withstand many conditions, including drought and brief periods of freezes and cold snaps, surviving in temperatures ranging from 15-110 degrees F, with special care (such as covering) taken in extreme situations.
