Dry California still growing.
On a very fast trip to Oakland. The blue Plumbago is on its own..no summer watering for it. The Weeping Fig is fronting some old warehouse. The Majesty palm looks good. Probably never seen a frost in this part of the bay area.
Sorry I didnt get more and better..I was in a hurry. Its been a while since I just drove around Oakland...its just about a frost free climate and an old part of the bay area. That adds up to some large tropicals.
