cocos australis? On a Butia?
My Pindo palm I got from Lowes says "cocos australis." What does this mean? Is it even a thing? I looked it up and some Butias came up and other palms came up.
How fast do Pindo palms grow? Does it matter wether it's a single or double trunk?
We bought this pindo yesterday (pic https://i.imgur.com/nQVKAsG.jpg) and were wondering what a good placement would be. Are they fast growers? I keep seeing mixed information online, so i was hoping to get a more accurate answer from the experts
Butia Growth Rate
By The Steve
This was a real surprise for me. Early 2016 I planted a strap leaf seedling (3 leaves) that I grabbed from out of the boot of a mature Butia odorata. It got planted out near the curb, with no care, planted in clay. I'm not sure what type of watering it gets, but I've never seen it watered. Anyways, the pics tell the story.
butia yatay not yatay??
The butia yatay seeds that I ordered from Rarepalmseeds in early October just arrived and to my way of thinking, do NOT look like butia yatay seeds...
What think you???
Which Butia is the most cold hardy?
I'm located in zone 7b and the winters are in the high 20s to low 30s. Should I get Butia x Jubaea seeds or Butia paraguayensis x Butia capitata? Which one would be the most cold hardy?
