Re: Coconut Palm Range
I can't speak to the Vero Beach area specifically. But, coconut palms are plentiful all the way up to Cape Canaveral in Brevard County on the East coast of Florida. Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach are loaded with them. There are a few others in Merritt Island (slightly inland from Cocoa Beach) and even further North in New Smyrna Beach. But, in all the years (52 years) I have lived in this area, Cape Canaveral is the recognized limit of long-term survival of coconut palms directly on the coast.
Even much further south, coconut palms become much less plentiful once you get West of Interstate 95.
Just my 2 cents. Of course, Jane will know specifically where coconuts stop in Indian River County...
