Jubaea spectabilis or Wine Palm of Chile is one of our hardiest palms, growing well even in San Francisco. It has much the same habit as the Date Palm family but differs from them in its closer habit and heavier foliage, being an excellent palm for small gardens as it is of slow growth and formal habit and is not particular as to soil.

Propagate by seeds sown, in early Spring, one inch deep in a hotbed or warm greenhouse; give pot room as required.
