The hardiest of all feather-leaved palms. This slow growing species is characterised by its elegant, smooth grey trunks and long architectural leaves. With fully mature specimens reputedly hardy down to -10C (14F), this palm is well worth a try in more sheltered areas. Native to the warm temperate forests of coastal Chile, these palms require a well-drained sunny position to reflect the Mediterranean conditions of their natural habitat. Various indigenous groups in Chile have long harvested this plant for its sweet, sticky sap, which can be made into a powerfully intoxicating wine (hence its name).
