Does anyone have these two hybrids and can you show pics? Thanks (not Jubea x Syagrus)

I've got a strap BXLyto not much to look at currently. 

I can snap a pic, bit of an ugly duckling currently IMO

RJ....do you have a feel for what size palm it will become? width/height?

syagrus x jubaea- not the best pic.  That was taken in June, it grew out a lot late in the year.  It’s been slower growing than jubaea x syagrus.

butia x lyto- this was a strap leaf seedling in April of 2015.  It took off this year and doubled in size.  It resembles a smaller, slender butiagrus.

Wow! Those are both great looking hybrids.  Would you take a pic of your JxS for comparison....we're they all the same size when you got them?

You probaby have the largest example of these two hybrids anywhere.

Thank you.  I obtained them at different times from Patric- all strap leaf seedlings. The SxJ is at least 6-7 yrs old- I’ll have to look up when I bought it.  The JxS I bought the same time as SxJ was MUCH faster growing.  It grew in-ground in Dallas, then transplanted to San Marcos.  It grew rapidly there, then was killed by the evil rhino beetle!  I have a younger JxS with a different leaf form - I’ll have to take a pic of it.

Sorry I neglected to reply to this. David, I certainly think it's going to be smaller then a typical B X S, i'ts strap leaf's are smaller and much coarser then a typical mule. As I noted it another thread mine looks difference then Matt's for sure as a strap leaf. When I spoke with Patric I don't think there is a mature specimen of any of these, and as you noted Matt may have the largest B X L.w .

This is a pic of Ben in Norcal's B X L.w that he posted awhile back. I saved to for reference. Hope he doesn't mind me posting it. :greenthumb:

So little room left in my yard that the BxL would probably be the ticket for a courtyard palm. Interesting that SxJ would be slower than the reverse. 

If B. odorata gets 30ft. and Lytocarium weds get 10ft. And Lytocariem is the pollen doner....maybe the hybrid will max out at 20ft. ? ....would probably take a long time ...thinking of putting it here

If you look at the bottom you can see a L. hoene ...there are tworse small L. weds there too ....very slow...not enough water or good soil. Going to move them into pots.

I love planters next pools. When we install ours I certainly plan to include them. We don't typically screen in pools up here, but I know it's common in your neck of the woods. My cousin in Pensacola has his pool screened in. I don't recall how high it was but certainly not 20ft....

BxL almost to fat for this area.....I don't know .... maybe not a good spot.... C. crinita might be cool looking since the area gets cold protection anyways?

      A few months ago I posted a topic about my bodacious Sabal minor Emerald Isle Giant I originally purchased from well-regarded Plant Delights Nursery in NC, so I know it is the real thing. See link below to view that topic:
      http://www.palmtalk.org/forum/index.php?/topic/58162-sabal-minor-emerald-isle-giant-wseeds-any-interest/
       
      At the time I posted that topic the palm was loaded with green seeds and I asked if anyone would be interested in them later. I got quite a few responses so I let the seeds ripen and now have quite a few harvested and ready for new homes.
      Normally, I sell seeds only within the continental US but I had responses from several European PTers so I will make an exception. But - if you live in Europe (or Australia) be aware that US postage for even a small 1 oz. package of seeds is astronomical, more than the cost of the seeds themselves. Also understand that I must fill out a US Customs form online with the US Gov't declaring the contents of any pkg and I cannot/will not lie. Finally, know the customs of your own country: some countries are easygoing about palm seeds from FL, others will seize seeds, destroy them, even hold them for ransom. If your customs seizes your seeds, I can't replace them or refund your money. 
      All that said, please see summary below:
      Sabal minor Emerald Isle Giant Seeds: 50 for $10.00
      Sabal minor Emerald Isle Giant Seeds: 100 for $15.00
      Shipping in padded envelope: $4.00 in continental US (Sabal seeds illegal in HI)
      International shipping in padded envelope: $15.00 for up to 100 seeds with US Customs declaration
      Please PM me if you are interested. Thanks and regards
      See photos below of seeds and mother palm.

      This palm was tucked back into the corner of my yard behind my large S. causiarum and never got the glory it should have received. It is a really cold hardy and pretty palm. I wish I had several more planted but just didn't realize how nice they are until owning this one. Anyway here is a closeup of the trunk.,  its got a redish color and the fronds self clean nicely.

      Made an interesting observation this week.  I have three supposed Sabal causarium planted out right now...two from one source (2nd year in the ground), and a small one (about 3 gallon) planted early this spring that I got from someone else.
      We've hit about 25-26F a few times so far this winter, and the small one is 100% burned already (what a wimp!).  The other two show no damage, and took low teens last winter with light damage (this is consistent with the species when mature, so I am told).  So the 3rd palm is obviously different from the first two.  I suspect it will survive the winter since the growth point is well underground.
      So - any guesses?
      - The small palm is incorrectly identified and is actually a more cold tender species (but what)?
      - The small palm is correct, but the larger two aren't (maybe causarium x palmetto)?
      - They're all causarium, but the species varies greatly in cold hardiness?
      Attempting to identify them from photos at this size would be a futile effort.

      I've yet to visit southern Oregon, but a quick scan of google maps showed some a real nice CIDP in Gold Beach.  As far as I know these are the northern most ones in North America.  I have a feeling their range may be creeping slowly Northward.

      New to the board...Wanted to share a few pics of my Sabal minors from the Oklahoma City area (Z-7A). I've got around 20 or so Minors of differing sizes in my landscape. Some are seed-grown from my largest plant and others were purchased. Most of these have been in the ground for right at three years now. I've had my largest Minor for eight years and was fortunate that it transplanted successfully at the end of 2015. These plants absolutely thrive in our Oklahoma summer heat and get through winter with very little damage here. I've had some slight burn during our coldest winter snaps (mid-single digits), but nothing worse.
      The smaller Minors are the "McCurtain" variety. They're very, very slow growing, but have been in the ground for three years after being purchased as a small strap-leafed plants. As far as I can tell, my large Minor is a "Louisiana", but I'm not 100% sure. I bought it at a local nursery and the tag didn't specify. 
      Thanks!
