This park is truly a Sabal pametto paradise. I know, there are plenty of parks in Florida with wild Sabal palmetto forests; however, there is something about the way nature presents itself here that keeps me coming back. These pictures were taken on Christmas Day of 2020. I have also seen Roystonea regia and Serenoa repens growing in the park as well.

My Copernicia rigida finally seems to have taken off this year with our record breaking heat waves. It's actually been planted in that spot for about 10 years now from a small seedling,but has just begun producing its first few upright fronds.Its been very slow for me, (maybe too much shade) but I'm hopeful it has an accelerated growth rate from this point forward.
It's my first summer with my Royal here in arizona and I noticed over the last few days that the second newest frond is already looking a little toasty. I water heavily three to 4 times a day and when I check the dirt, it is not dried out.
I also give it arizonas best fertlizer once a month.
Any suggestions or will it adapt over time.
Please see below, its the frond on the right :).
