Seen here are thirteen long neck, bushy-haired palm trees blowing in the wind at Palisades Park in Santa Monica. Palms are one of the most well-known and extensively cultivated plant families, and are widely used in landscaping for their exotic appearance, making them one of the most economically important plants. There are roughly around 2,600 species of palms, which can live in almost every type of habitat, but most are restricted to tropical or subtropical climates, such as the coastal climates of Santa Monica, which enjoys an average of 325 days of sunshine a year. The palms in this photo are just a handful of hundreds located in Santa Monica and its parks. Palisades Park stretches out along the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean and is a favorite walking area to view the ocean.
