Re: Florida East Coast from Flagler Beach to Ponce Inlet

Message from Craig Central FL

For some reason, North of Cape Canaveral, there doesn't seem to be much zone pushing going on. In Daytona Beach, there seems to be many instances where there are ocean facing opportunities where a Coconut palm might be able to survive.

One thing that may be an issue is that North of Cape Canaveral the gulf stream veers Northeast away from the coast. This may be the reason there is such a difference in what will grow South of Cape Canaveral on the coast and barrier islands. Just a thought,

But, I was shocked not to see anyone even trying a Coconut in the Ponce Inlet area.
