Archontophoenix cunninghamiana - King Palms (Archontophoenix cunninghamiana - King Palms)

These are very nice tall King palms. It's a very common palm here; however, these are very nice tall, old palms. Photo taken Jan. 26, 2016.

Love those palms Andy. I dont pay any attention to the specialist who write them off..and then plant something that struggles to survive and never looks even near as nice.
Then- here in the bay area? They are still the nicest tropical looking palm..with Howea's. But Howeas are very rare.
Just that thing of soucal always being warm and near frost free having a century head start,...and the bay area just over the last 2 decades moving to more and more milder and much less frost.

The news says- not me,but science- San Francisco will be as warm as Los Angeles at the end of the century.
Los Angeles? As warm and dry as Cabo.

By then desalination might save us...

I did read the article about the San Francisco will be as warm as Los Angeles and Los Angeles will be as warm as Miami by 2060. It appears to be heading that way...and faster than we think. All you have to do is look at the weather statistics. The warmest winters on recorded have been since 2000. The summers here in San Diego are getting so much hotter and humid, every people want to move away because it's getting too hot.

The article about the climate changes of the big cities in the U.S. is on the internet and it originated from Stanford University, if I'm not mistaken.
