Jubaea chilensis
Chilean Wine Palm



Qty $ 3.95 /packet

6 large seeds
Jubaea chilensis Probably the most massive and undoubtedly the most cold-tolerant of all pinnate palms, this species, although not common in cultivation, hardly needs any introduction. Native to central Chile, it is well suited to temperate and subtropical climates. It is highly drought tolerant but will also do well in cold and humid conditions. It does not need hot summers to grow well and in winter it can take severe frost down to 3°F unharmed. For many temperate climates it is the only large pinnate palm which is cold-tolerant enough to be successful long-term. Many fine, centennial examples can be admired for instance in California, Australia and along the Mediterranean, in southern Switzerland, along the windy Atlantic coast of France and even in Britain. And there are other areas where it would do well but has not been tried Germination and establishment are slow but easily accomplished and young plants are sought after and of high value as they are rarely found in the nursery trade. We can now offer seeds of excellent quality at exceptionally low prices.
