Roof Top Palms

Recommended Posts

miamicuse

Here are some pictures of palms on the roof tops of some mid-rise buildings in Miami.

Hard to tell how tall they are, but looks quite mature.  I assume they are not planted in giant planters, thinking in Miami on a roof top giant planters during a hurricane could be a very dangerous projectile.  So how are these planted?  Do they make a sunken section of the roof and fill it with soil and planted them?

I see those in some buildings of the rich part of my city aswell. except they are adonidias and queen palms. I'm not sure how they plant them though.

They had huge, heavy pots and some planters on the 30th floor rooftop pool area in the building where I lived for years.

A quick google image search indicates most are planted in giant planters.

I used to live in one of those high rises in Miami (Brickell). Giant planters are built in many times. We had royals and D. pembana on our deck there. All of the big buildings did.
