What kind are they and would they grow well in the panhandle?
It's a Dioon spinulosum, Todd. From the Cycad Family, one of the oldest plant families on the planet. Not a palm, but many are very similar in appearance. Highly collectable and of high value in the industry.

From Wiki:
Dioon spinulosum, giant dioon, or gum palm, is a cycad endemic to limestone cliffs and rocky hillsides in the tropical rainforests of Veracruz and Oaxaca, Mexico. It is one of the tallest cycads in the world, growing to 12m in height.

It is hardy to USDA Zones 9B – 11.

You'd have to move south at least into where the yellow is......
