Re: Coconut Palms normally start in the Cape area:
Message from Craig Central FL
The more I think about it, the Gulfstream moving away from the coast at Cape Canaveral must be the reason we see such a difference in what will grow in that relatively short distance. If you look across the state to the area North of Tampa (that is at the same latitude), you don't typically see Coconut and Royal palms.
