Southern Oregon - Gold Beach Palms

Recommended Posts

Chester B

I just came back from a vacation where I was able to spend a couple days at the coast in the southern part of Oregon.  I didn't manage to get too many photos as I was afraid I was pretty suspicious looking driving around in black car with tinted windows stopping in front of people's homes and rolling down the window to snap pictures of their homes.  I was surprised at the sheer number of palms I saw growing that I can't here in Portland.  Cordylines are pretty common at the coast anywhere in Oregon but there were some pretty thick trunked specimens around.  What I didn't capture in these photos were the presence of Washingtonia filifera that seemed to be common as well.  

Unfortunately I didn't have the time to drive around Bandon to look for the northernmost CIDP's...

Those pictures could be anywhere on the East coast of New Zealand's South Island. Even the houses look familiar.

Las Palmas Norte

I was thru there in the early 90's and saw a large P. canariensis fried from freezing temps. Don't know if it recovered. Yup … those Corylines look hefty.

Cheers, Barrie.
