Re: If Bermuda can grow Coconut palms,why not Los Angeles?

I saw the other comments and agree with them. From my observations (visits around the world plus viewing pics online) is that for a coconut to survive long-term, there needs to be the coldest month of the year averaging at least 60 deg F. Bermuda is well above that, while Los Angeles and other milder parts of So-Cal are 3-5 deg F below this. And then cooler nights during the non-winter nights will make it a lot harder to grow and offset any of the damage from mainly the relatively cold winter ground where the roots are.
