JANCHICOCO PALM (Parajubaea torallyi)

A high altitude palm

The Janchicoco Palm is a colossal palm from the driest Andes. Some populations of this endemic species of Bolivia, symbol of the country’s plant wealth on its national coat of arms, can be found just a few kilometers from the Villa Imperial de Potosí, erected at more than 4,000 meters above sea level. In this desertic mountain region, striking stands of this palm can be found on steep sandstone slopes surrounded by dry Andean scrubs.
