I remember back around the years 1990- 2000 there was a lot of SF Bay Area interest in Parajubeas and their hardiness and adaptability. I was fortunate enough to be able to receive some Parajubea torallyi var. torallyi. I started them in tall pots in Los Gatos and brought them after a few years to Humboldt County, California. Gophers got the first ones I planted in the ground up here but I dealt with most of them and now have a couple of palms in the ground doing well and I wanted to report on them to anyone looking for information as I was years ago. I am just less then 3 miles from the Pacific on a slightly south facing slope 327' above the Mad River, just north of Arcata. The USDA classifies this spot as 9B but I have my doubts sometimes. The limiting factor is really lack of heat here although occasional frosts do happen. Even with the frost and lack of heat, I have been able to grow a few palms. Among those palms ones that I love most are my Parajubeas. Since I have planted them in the ground 5 or 6 years ago I have enjoyed watching them grow and it seems as though once they get established they grow pretty good. My garden is at 40.92°Latitude 124Longitude, I'd love to know if anyone is trying them any farther north. My impression is that these palms are very hardy to all kinds of tough conditions and that they would do well pretty far up the coast of Oregon, if not Washington state.
