Jubaea chilensis in Rome, Italy


Recommended Posts

We are here in Rome for a few days and just visited the Botanical garden today. In the palm garden they had some nice CIDP, very tall washingtonias, sabals, butias, livistonas, a queen, a brahea and some orher varieties but the most amazing was a massive jubaea chilensis.


Very impressive was also a nannorrhops ritchiana that seems to be very old.

Here are some more photos from the same botanical garden.

Tall and small palmetto with a lot of med. fans for background.


This palmetto (no desciption) looks like one of the big varieties.


Livistona chinensis


Tall CIDPs


A tall queen


Butia with very tall washies in the back


This brahea didn't have a description but I don't remember any thorns on the petioles. The light is not very good in the photo but the palm is very silver.




Phoenix reclinata


More trachycarpus




The last one didn't have a description but it looks maybe like a copernicia alba. It's still in a big pot but I'm not sure if they will plant it in the ground or they will move it for the winter.
