Several years ago (2010) I purchased on Ebay the rare "Jubutyagrus" seedling (cost $100 (88+12) with shipping). It grew some, but then died, was very picky plant. It looked very much like the regular Queen Palm. I'm attaching some photos of it.

I don´t know if I agree that BxJ are more atractive than JxB.......blink.gif

When I remember the Tauranga JxB in NZ..... :drool: :drool: :drool:

http://www.pbase.com/edgegallery/image/31760206

Alberto, That Tauranga JxB has always been one of my favorites. Malcolm Thomas sent me seeds from this tree years ago, and I have a few of them growing here in Florida. He says that they are likely pollinated by nearby Butia. Unfortunately, they can't handle the heat and humidity here and nearly die every Summer. Through the Winter they recover and lookk great by May-June. I will get a photo and post it later. My largest is still in a 15 gallon container because I have tried it in different locations to avoid heat.

Tim, I am not convinced, I have one that looks very Jubaea like , I dont see 75% butia in it. I have the feeling a few flowers are self pollinating.

I understand the palm is now some distance from the nearest butias since it was moved.

Nigel, I also thought that some must be self pollinating since I have heard reports that the seed sets were heavy. If it is some distance frome Butia you would expect a lower seed set. Here is my oldest Tauranga JxB offspring. I hate to post a picture with it looking like this because it looked so good two months ago. Well, Here it is....OH, and yes , I already know MAUSER..."It look like pure Butia to You" :hmm:

Looks like Butia eriospatha that I have.

I got mine from the same batch at the same time from the same seller and it has done very well. After it gains some size it looks nothing like a queen palm, more like a xButyagrus on steroids. Ive heard reports that there is some variability on the vigor of hybrids so maybe you got a plant with weak genetics?

I'm thinking of putting a bullet to the head of my Schafer Jubutygrus. It just won't stop brown tipping and yellowing.

Yes, probably something went wrong. Now I'm growing a Butyagrus, which I bought at around 3-4 ft. tall. It's in a pot and did not seem to suffer any discolouration at 23F. Am looking to buy F1 hybrid seeds Jubutia, Butiagrus and also a Butia eriospatha (seeds and plants). Preferable parents Butia yatay.

I would like to see a strait SxJ and JxS hybrid without any Butia influence.

I also bought a hopper x-jubutyagrus almost 3 years ago. Its 9' tall and looking good. Its a far more upright palm than a queen and is not plumose as a queen is. It initially had some spotting, but that is gone now. It is also more upright in form than my mules. Mine was planted in full sun(6+ hrs) with a very sandy soil mix.

Has anyone heard from Tim Hopper or is he still missing in action?

Bad picture of one of my Hopper Jubutyagrus. Probably about 8' OA. No problems with this palm.

i am agree, there are genetics variations between them, i have various Tim´s jubutiagrus and meanwhile some still growing fast, others slowly and very damaged at the leaflets(brown spots and necrosis)

beautiful jubutiagrus pics!!

      Buildable 4.5 acre palm grove (licensed nursery) located about 20 minutes west of Ormond Beach Florida.  Square shaped parcel was sub-divided, so each parcel can be built upon if so desired.  Paved road in residential neighborhood but properly zoned for AG too (A-3).  WELL-DRAINED soil (sand hill).
      In 2009 I had the property cleared and fenced in.  The next year I had the 500 Sq. ft Barn substantially improved/rebuilt.  
      Collectors mix of cold-hardy palms with dozens of F1 Jubaea x Butia and/or backcrossed BJx Jubaea.  Most of the F1 Jubutia are now producing seed.  Substantial business opportunity for east coast production of Jubutia of F1 genetic character.  There’s also substantial interest in hand-made hybrids like Jubutyagrus.  I have two ‘Mountain Queens’ that Nigel Kembrey kindly sent me seeds of years ago.  They should soon flower.
      Other palms can be dug & sold, or kept to admire.  These include about 30 Jubutyagrus, 5 large Butia x Parajubaea and one ultra-rare Jubaea x Queen.  Several Sabal Louisiana (one mature) from an outstanding blue specimen.  A few smaller Blue Brahea Dulcis, Super Silver, Trachy Princeps,Livistona Mariae hybrids, and 3 nice silver Bismarckia from especially cold-hardy parents.
      $200k purchase price or for buyers capable of pursuing the commercial opportunity, a partnership is possible.  That next phase is too much for this one man.
      Serious inquiries can PM me.  Now how about a few photos already? :-). First few are of thick-trunked Jubutia — the silver specimen hasn’t flowered just yet.

      I germinated this Archontophoenix cunninghamiana summer of 2019, and I stuck it in the ground this past spring. I have been wanting to try one with protection just because I thought it would be to have a zone 9b+ palm in a borderlines 7a/7b area. So here it is, my Archontophoenix cunninghamiana with a heating cable just thrown around it covered by an old sheet and a tarp in Central Virginia. I chose this species because I not only like how it looks but because I know they can handle cooler conditions, which is perfect for inside of the protection. I open the bottom flaps to let light in and to give it ventilation during warmer days. It is actually growing inside of the protection too. One day about a month ago I left it uncovered and it got down to 30°F briefly, which burnt some of the fronds and the spear quite a bit. I’ll post updates.

      For sale is the total crop of seeds of an unknown dwarf Sabal minor. I germinated this palm around 2008 from a seed sent to me by a PTer I can no longer recall. Where he got it I don't know but he sent it to me as Sabal etonia. I learned years later it is actually S. minor. That makes sense to me because actual Sabal etonias never survived for me. I planted it in my Caribbean Garden in 2009. During the 12 years I have had it, it has grown painfully slowly to its current size of 2' tall x 3-4' wide. I has flowered for years but produces crops of sometimes fewer than 100 seeds. This year's seed output is <200 seeds. It is a compact grower and should be cold hardy as any other Sabal minor.
      180+ Sabal minor unknown dwarf seeds = $15.00  ONE LOT ONLY
      Shipping = $5.00 in padded envelope. No shipping outside the US; no shipping to HI

      Here’s the final touches to the palmscape...Medi now has the black frost cloth “shroud“ I’ll unpin and yank down when we hit the teens...the Trachy gets its final layer of frost cloth (already on top of a 3” layer of mulch) so I think we’re good...the Needle palms spent the whole time laughing at my efforts as usual. Hope all had a good Christmas and wishing everyone the very best in 2021.
