Here's a very nice "blue colored jubea" that I brought in recently. It was a fun dig and I'm excited to have it in my garden, It is now located at the bottom of the road/ entry to the garden. I wanted to put a very nice statement piece you come into the garden. I have a few other palm that I will plant next to the jubea this week.

Nice Josh! That's going to be a nice big garden. That Jubaeopsis looks great! I just got moved into a new place but not much to show off yet and not that much space. I'm jealous haha. Keep it up and looking forward to updates!

Thanks Chris.

I just noticed that my jubaeopsis has 3 flowers on it. It set viable seed last year form the first time.

cheers..!

Sweet! should set some more seeds soon then! I'll take some off your hands if you have too many to handle haha. That Jubaea looks fantastic too! Good placement for a beauty like that.
