Re: Next Time I'm in La Jolla

Yep--summer temps are pretty similar, though winter temps are quite a bit higher in La Jolla. For a lot of tropical plants, that's what matters (for example, coconut palms generally can't survive where the lowest average monthly temperature in winter is below around 59-60 deg F). There are definitely plants/trees where spring and summer temps matter--royal poincianas would do a lot better in San Diego if we had more spring and summer heat, for example. As we've mentioned before too, unless it's risk of a freeze/hard freeze that's the limiting factor for a plant, most tropical plants in borderline conditions simply tend to grow more slowly or don't grow as large versus so much dying (for example, mangoes in California).
