Always cool to see palms in the northwest! Goes to show how hardy Jubaea are. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for those pics. I wonder how Walt Rockfellow's Jubaea is doing? I think I recall of his passing a few years ago, but I could be wrong.

Cheers, Barrie.

Looks great. I love the terrain and other foliage. Really looks exotic with those palms.

I'm really worried about this upcoming winter. It's supposed to be La Nina and that means extra cold and extra rainy her in the PNW. Its been years since Ive seen snow in the inner Seattle metro area but this winter might be bad.

Maybe it wont be as bad as they say..  Most of the time their predictions are incorrect as it is.

Are those Jubaea over by the Washington Park Arboretum/Seattle Japanese garden? I was there last month for Thanksgiving and saw several healthy-looking Jubaea while going for a run in that greenbelt area.

they are hardy to 12 degrees fahrenheit with high humidity,and 8 degrees with low humidity.Doubt it will get that cold,however temps at 15-18 degrees fahrenheit for more than 5 days will probably kill the plant.

All of my small jubaea totally defoliated this year at 13F and the large one burned 80%.  I had about 50% (20 of them) die in 15G pots and 10% of the 25G die in pots. Zero in the ground died.

Small update:

Its been a hot dry summer here in the rainy city (.88 inches of rain since May) went by the arboretum and the Jubaea are thriving. Wish I could get closer to give a better scale of the size but I dont want to cause any trouble or look suspicious. I wish the city would be more adventurous and place more Jubaea in more prominent public parks/streets.

The biggest one (center) has 3-4 spears that look ready to open.

Lack of water in your climate wont even phase them. Jubaea are one of the moat drought tolerant palms we grow. Easily on par with brahea armata.

I bet they like the dry sunny summers over there. Those are getting pretty big. Thanks for the update!

Two different fan palms, both in the ground for about two years with no winter protection.

Absolutely awesome Jubaea! Love seeing that in the Seattle area. Tacoma has a hybrid one that's a cross with a Pindo I believe, but it's quite a bit smaller than the ones you posted.

Cheers.

Those Seattle Jubaea's are doing great along with those other palms. Thanks for sharing and updating!  I've got two JxB F2, one is about 6' tall (slow but steady grower) and a smaller one that's about half that size. I haven't had to protect mine in years.  

Here's the most current picture.
