The beauty of this species, in some contexts, used intelligently becomes a conversation piece. However when
you plant a bunch as many do here they become just more vegetation. Congratulations for the article and great
pictures. I believe they are much better than palm trees when looking for a tropical theme. On the other hand,
palm trees become just a little more than a light post with the hindrance of organic waste: seeds and huge
unsightly leaves.

That type of coconut were grown in Guanica, Puerto Rico. The picture was taken in the
80's. There are not many left.
