ruskinPalms Posted April 4, 2009 Report Share Posted April 4, 2009 I can speak about the west coast of FL. It is "tropical" on all the barrier islands here. They start about at the Pasco county and Pinellas county border and head south to the florida keys. Banyans, cocos, adonidias and whatever tropical plants flourish on these islands. On the mainland on the west coast it starts to look tropical from south central tampa southward never more than 5 or so miles from the gulf of mexico and/or tampa bay and/or charlotte harbour etc. even as far south on the mainland as collier county. Really. You must be within 5 or so miles of a major body of water to maintain the tropical look and feel here on the west coast of FL. But even though it is a narrow band of tropical beauty here, it is still incredible - feels like the carribean really...
