I think being an island sure helps with the stability besides the Siberian winter anti-cyclone.

Him really want compare an island with a continental place?

A fair comparasion would be with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hefei#Climate ? lets look who is colder.. they are at same latitude and distance from the ocean.

I don't care for palm trees or cactus and if I never saw another one of either, in my life, I wouldn't be missing anything. 🌵

people! average temps have little to do with it. its the minimum temps, notice both Redding and Miyazaki have record lows at and above the washingtonia threshold of ~16F.

as for Las Vegas, its so dry it can get colder without damaging the tree. (same with El Paso, TX)

How can anyone hate these or think they look out of place?





Also saw these earlier when driving around, though they are noticeably larger now (2 CIDPs and a butia).

I like Palms, but I like Weeping Willows much more. As for being out of place, yeah I don't think of Oceanic climates as a place that is home to Palm trees even though they might be able to grow there. Sub tropical, tropical and desert climates come to mind.

Theyre ok...im not wild about them, the way most people around here seem to be...they can quickly ruin the look of some towns ive seen.

Weeping Willows are just beautiful trees. Was going to plant one a few years ago when the local government cut down all my trees because they were infected by the Asian Long Horn Beetle, but after finding out that Weeping Willows roots grow deep and can crack sewer pipe and foundation, I decided not to.
