Wine Palm
Wine Palm

  • Price: $13.00

It needs mild winters, but will tolerate frosts down to about 15°C (5°F) as well as relatively cool summers, making it one of the hardiest of pinnate-leaved palms; this is because it grows up to 1,400 metres above sea level in its natural habitat. In the wild, the tree lives almost exclusively on the steep slopes of ravines. This palm suffers and can die in areas with extreme heat combined with high humidity.

Comments Warnings : A very beautiful palm with edible fruit. The fruit is quite delicious with an apricot flavour. It is often used to make wine

It is the perfect palm for a tropical look in cold areas although it can also grow in subtropicals locations. Its cold tolerance is very well known, e.g. it can tolerate to -100C for some hours. Definitely the most cold tolerant of the Butias, it is also a very drought and wind resitant. It is very slow growing.
