Troy, Darold,

I enjoyed having you guys over for our mini-PRA, and thanks Troy for posting the photos of the hybrid so promptly.

The hybrid B X P truly is an amazing palm. It's the fastest growing palm I have, and it seems adaptable to various climates. It seems to grow equally well for Mark Heath in Central Florida with warm, humid nights, and at my place with cool summer nights. Looking at the first photo on this thread, you can see 3 different layers of fronds. The lower fronds are from 2 years ago, the middle layer from last year, and the upper vertical fronds from this year. I estimate it grows about 8 new fronds a growing season.

Instead of growing one frond at a time, it usually has 3 or 4 new fronds pushing out at various stages of growth. I have removed 6 or 8 of the lower fronds as the rapidly swelling trunk was pushing the tips of the lower fronds into the ground, and I couldn't get close to the tree from the clutter of the lower fronds. In my opinion, B X P is the ultimate Cocoid hybrid. Patrick Schafer will have some B X P in 4" deep liners for sale at my PS meeting on Oct 3rd, as well as other hybrid Cocoid palms. There will be a nice selection of other cold hardy palms, including Jubaeas, and Parajubaeas, etc.

Wow Dick! I think this is now my favorite palm in your garden. Last time I was there it wasn't even planted. And that was only a very few years ago. I look forward to watching it mature. I am sure it will be magnificent. And thanks to you Patric for all the work you do at Darold's and Dick's to produce such hardy and adaptable beauties. I have not forgotten about the pollen you requested. It should be ready before too long. And Troy, thanks for the posting!

Susan,

The seeds of the B X P were germinated around 2001. The palm was planted the summer of 2006 from a 5 gal size and it never slowed down growing, in fact it seemed to speed growth once it was in the ground. The winter following the summer planting was the coldest in years in Calif. and the palm was not fazed by the cold. My low was about 23.5 F. and many frosty nights.

I was surprised to see this old thread pop up again. The photos at the top of this thread was taken about 10 months ago. I know it's hard to believe but the palm is now half again larger than in the photo. It grows incredibly fast. I'll try to get some photos out soon. The palm is blooming now, and the first inflorescence was pollenated with Jubaea pollen. It aborted most of the flowers, but is hanging on to 13 fruit. The 2nd inflorescence was pollenated with its own pollen, and it aborted many of the flowers, but it's still hanging on to quite a few. It's a little early to know the results of the 2nd pollenation, but we are hoping this spectacular palm will produce many F2 babies.

I was fortunate to purchase two of these hybrids and they came as two leaf hybrids about two years ago. I have planted both and they are indeed very fast. They came from Patrick and they indeed appear as though they will be fantastic. Very green palm fronds. I think the palms will double in size every two years at least for some time.
