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?

Newly Planted Butia Pindo Palm
I planted a 2 foot Pindo Palm 7 weeks ago but I haven't noticed any growth.
The palm looks healthy with only the older fronds having brown tips.
The Center frond is still green, i marked it besides a mature frond about a month ago but haven't seen a change. I have mulch around it and its been well watered but not overwatered.
Is it just focusing on growing its roots out or should i be concerned?
Mystery Butia at Ft. Myers BB
Today my husband and I dropped into a Ft. Myers BB garden center. Among the rows of "usual suspect" palms, I noticed a pinnate palm that was quite bluish green. The label on the pot read, "Pindo Palm". But it didn't look like the common Butia odorata. I looked closer and realized the petioles were smooth, not spiny. I asked my husband to take photos to post. Is this another Butia species or just a user friendly variation of the garden variety Butia? See photos below
