Trachycarpus WagnerianusXPrinceps

For some years I was trying to make this cross.

After being hold up by some one who had the Princeps male flowering for some years already, I finally succeeded in pollinating my Waggy with pollen from a dutch palm enthousiast.

The result off sowing some seeds in January, is so far two seedlings.

I think that the seeds behave as the true Princeps, a few will germinate in the first year, and the others the years to come.

Princeps is a 2 ridger(first leaf)and yours is coming up a four ridger like

Fortunei(Waggie)...very interesting,this is the cross that I have always

wanted to try but I have always wondered if the latent Fortunei genes

in Wagnerianus would show up in a cross with Princeps and leave you

with a plant similar to "Nova"????

 

 

This will be very interesting to watch develop!

Please keep us posted!

Some pictures of the male Trachycarpus Princeps.

I think that the trunk is about 1 meter high.

Jim, I sold some of the seeds on the EPS.

This is an exciting cross Aldert. I also managed to get some pollen this year from a former EPS member in London. I managed to cross it with wagnerianus, and fortunei. I also had some seeds from you that have already germinated so I look forward to see how they develop as I think they will be outstanding cold hardy palms for us.

Now 5...exciting up to the minute updates...

 

Maybe get a ridge count on some of these in a month or so

and find out whos running the show...2 ridgers for Princeps or

4 for Waggies...or ?#?...certainly will be fun to see what features develop on

this new creation.

I walked by my baby princeps this afternoon and snapped a few pics to keep the thread going.

Love the furry trunks on these palms....this cross really intrigues me...

it will be fascinating to see if they are all 4 ridgers or a mix of 2 & 4...

last time I looked about 15 had come up out of the 40 planted.

I would guess with the mother being Waggy that they will be 4 ridgers.  From that I have witnessed with palms and cycads the mother's genes are usually very dominant.

All of my 18 or so WxP seedlings are 4-ridgers. The pics seem to show what might appear to be 8 or 9 ridges but this is just an illusion as on each leaf blade there are pale lines between each one. Each blade is very wide indeed.

Thanks for posting pics of these....do they seem a little different

than typical Fortunei seedlings-if so,in what way??? They look a little different to me...

that ridge outline is smoother than what I have seen and they appear to be wider and possibly longer?

 

What do you think?

Mine are now pushing 2nd leaves and are all 4 ridgers except one that has 3 ridges. I bought a few extra from Aldert and sowed then directly in the garden, and after a warm spring/summer they are all coming up too. Very good seeds, looking forward to how they will develop.

I have bought fortunei x princeps will to compare the difference between them. I hope they will germinate quick
