There were lots of mature coconuts laying on the ground and sprouting from the different types present:

Kinzy, great pictures of an iconic South Florida Tropical Garden! Did you see the Copernicia fallaensis and the Suessian Hyphorbes

I know that I saw the Copernicia and and I think I saw the hyophorbes.  Might have a picture of both somewhere, but it's in a mix of over 300 pictures if I have it.
