Newport Beach Coconut update picture
Here a picture I took today of the Newport Beach coconut. It looks absolutely terrible, even though we've had a warm and humid spring and summer and the 2013/2014 winter being sunny and warm. It is just a reminder that coastal Southern California is not tropical, even though we like to landscape with tropical plants all over.
I saw many younger coconut palms this year in Maui and the trunks were twice as thick and the crowns were full, lush and green.
Sorry for the poor quality, I took them while I was driving :/
