There were lots of mature coconuts laying on the ground and sprouting from the different types present:

You can see a young sprout in the background:

Kinzy, great pictures of an iconic South Florida Tropical Garden! Did you see the Copernicia fallaensis and the Suessian Hyphorbes

I know that I saw the Copernicia and and I think I saw the hyophorbes.  Might have a picture of both somewhere, but it's in a mix of over 300 pictures if I have it.

      Cyrtostachys renda, the Red Sealing Wax Palm (also known as the Lipstick Palm) , has the well-deserved reputation of not being able to grow 'en la tierra' in Southern Florida. Notoriously cold-sensitive,
      It can 'brown off' at 40 degrees F. Attached photograph shows a 10-year old plant doing quite well on Miami Beach. It has a western and southern exposure and is shielded from the north. There are two 'tall' trunks , reaching 10 feet (highest point). The palm has managed 46 degrees F with no damage. On the same evening, temperatures 1-2 miles inland (Coral Gables) were 42 degrees.  South Florida has had a long streak (?15+ years) of mild winters. I can testify to knowing of fruiting breadfruit trees 25 feet high a mile from Biscayne Bay (something unthinkable 30 years ago), anecdotal evidence of climate change. Are other enthusiasts having success with the stunning Red Sealing Wax palm in Miami and environs?  Just curious.
