Cocos australis, the hardiest of the genus, is worthy of more attention from planters than it has received in the past and should do well in all of our valley counties. Cocos plumosa, a native of Southern Brazil, does surprisingly well in Southern California from Santa Barbara south, where avenues of them may be seen. They frequently attain a height of forty feet and make grand objects of stately beauty.

Propagate by seeds planted, in March, one inch deep in a warm greenhouse and grown on in pots until four feet high when they may be planted out of doors in a situation protected from frosts and harsh winds, until large enough to be planted in their permanent quarters.
