Jubaea chilensis. CHILEAN WINE PALM. Chile
PALMAE (Palm family)

Trees for our descendants: Four Chilean wine palms planted 1999, which look like small Canary Island date palms, grow on Serra Mall at Campus Drive West, near the Gates Building. If conditions suit them, these slow-growing palms might reach 50 feet someday.
