Coronado Island is a very desirable place to live...it's located across San Diego Bay.

I would so like to see a Strelitzia nicolai for real - perhaps, one day. :-)

David:

Come to San Diego...you'll see huge clumps growing everywhere. :>)

Speaking of clumps, are you sure that's not Traveler's Tree? Strelitzia nicolai usually comes in massive clums, rather than single trunks.

These are just thinned out. Ravenala madagascariensis - Traveler's palms have much larger petioles and leaves...and the flowers bracts are green. I have some posted, check them out.
