Care Notes

What a gorgeous and majestic palm tree this is, the Jubaea will eventually grow quite large but it is very slow growing. The Jubaea has beautiful, dark green arching leaves and a lovely fat grey trunk and looks instantly architectural and tropical in any planting scheme. The Chilean Wine Palm produces a sticky sap which can be made into palm syrup or 'palm wine', but the whole tree is sacraficed in the process, so this has obviously had a devestating impact on the Jubaea population and it is now a protected species in it's native Chile.

The Jubaea chilensis grows well in either a container or pot and loves a sunny or partly shaded spot in a free draining soil. Its a tough palm that will tolerate temperatures as low as -12. If you require a little help on sourcing a suitable pot, we recommend http://www.vasotoscano.com/ for beautiful terracotta pots and planters.

  • Situation Open Close

    This palm, like most silvery coloured plants, needs plenty of light to keep it looking good. A warm sheltered site is recommended.

  • Feeding Open Close

    A liquid feed every 2 weeks during the summer growing season will benefit this plant.

  • Pruning Open Close

    Remove any damaged or brown outer fronds, especially in the spring after the winter. Use a pruning saw to take them back to the base. The leaf stalks can be quite brittle so take care not to place the plant in a situation where it will get knocked about.

  • Soil Open Close

    A rich, well drained soil is best.

  • Watering Open Close

    Water well during the active growing season.

  • Pests and Diseases Open Close

    None to note when grown outside, indoors can suffer with Red Spider Mite or Scale Insect.

  • Winter Care Open Close

    More mature plants can withstand temperatures down to -10c. Smaller plants may need some winter protection, by moving under cover in a bright spot, of protecting the crown with a thick layer of fleece or hessian. Keep as dry as possible outdoors during winter.
