I have lots of golden cane palms and a few kentias, I plan on putting another coconut in,  I'll plant it facing north so it should lean out over the water which I think will help regulate it's temperature.

Love those Pics guys, really amazing pools.  Christmas palms work really well. and Coconuts and cane palms.  Maybe Bottle palms would work .  Love this design.  maybe another palm. 9554992c6656e5e0bd047bc9a4b70a1fa688aeb0

Bromeliads, airplants, Red Sisters, all look amazing around a pool.

I like this too. And palms aren't too messy outside seeds so no major pool cleanup needed.

Agreed, this is a great looking pool, the little tropical island look is really effective.

I have a Bottle and Spindle among others around the grotto. They are somewhat marginal in So Cal, so the pool and rock provide an excellent micro-climate!

Above ground aren’t the most appealing to the eye but the Xmas bottle and Pygmy date helps

Good looking for a fake palm. I wonder why that pool owner doesn't grow a real one though.

This is my pool at the beach. All the plantings are very salt/wind tolerant. Palms closest to the pool are Cocos and Thrinax radiata.
