Re: USF Botanical Gardens
Great pictures Brad. In the 80's such damage was more common around Central Florida from east to west.Lots of 'bulletproof' plants mixed in with less hardy plants.
Judging by the lack of damage on the Ficus aurea and then the brownout on the monstras, I would suggest that there was a large variety of lows at the botanical garden.
If I recall correctly, Walt from Lake Placid had like 5 acres. On his property here said there was a rage of 9a-10a. Elevation created much of the range 9aside from tree canopy as well).
Are you living in Florida now? Do you still have your home in Pittsburg?
Zone 10a Phoenix, Arizona
