San Carlos, Sonora

Lee in AZ

Recommended Posts

Earlier this month Richard from TX, Zac from NC, and I went to Sonora and traveled through out the center of the state.  

It was tough, having to come back from San Carlos.

There's no shortage of Roystonea regia and C. nucifera there, nor Delonix regia.







Not bad for 28.0° N.

Easy for you to say, Wal..

Looks like parts of Palm Springs....Looks like it could get cold there...if they can grow cocos, then why are they all here?

If global warming means I can grow Cocos Nucifera, then bring it on....

Lee, great photos.  Do you, Zac or Rich have any pictures of some of the other (native) palms of Sonora such as Sabal uresana?  An especially silver form of that palm is most stunning.  Love to see a pic or two.

Hawaii Island (Big Island), leeward coast, 19 degrees N. latitude, south Kona mauka at approx. 380m (1,250 ft.) and about 1.6 km (1-mile) upslope from ocean.


No record of a hurricane passing over this island (yet!).  

Summer maximum rainfall - variable averaging 900-1150mm (35-45") - Perfect drainage on black volcanic rocky soil.  

Nice sunsets!
