Re: Palms in my residential development
Rob, not starting an argument, because I really don't know the answer, but what are your thoughts comparing Vero Beach with the McAllen to Brownsville, Texas area?
I know when I see pics from that area, I'm seeing all kinds of amazing plants and trees.
Brownsville's at 26N.
Vero, 27 degrees, 38 minutes.
What Vero has going for it is better isolation from continental winter air masses. I know Texas is susceptible to what they call "northers" in the winter. Do the northers reach as far as Brownsville? Maybe once in awhile.
