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!!

      Update On the McCurtain...the leaf I thought might be a more mature frond is another two leaf strap...at 62, I need it to grow faster but I think I’ll chalk this one up as a lesson in patience. It’s not going to be what it’s not...but it’s a good candidate for my zone....

      Hello all
      For those of us who do not live in the States, the USDA Hardiness zone guidelines are a useful indication of what may grow in our country. I live in Nicosia Cyprus where we have relatively mild winters for most months - it is October and we are currently 36oC  with 20oC(night).  But it will suddenly change and by January, it will be continuous cold,  a little wet with possibly zero some nights which would normally I think put me on a 9b bordering 10a zone.
      However this can be misleading as I have found out the hard way. We have months and months of Mediterranean summer reaching 46oC this year (blame global warming). This means that the USDA zone alone is an insufficient guideline for us with more extreme weather as it does not take into account the max summer temperatures, the length of summer and winter conditions, rainfall etc.
      Nowadays, I often look at what other people are growing with similar climates nearest being  Southern California and even Sydney  (not in Cyprus as there are few of us pushing boundaries I think). Having recently joined this site, I look forward to following closely what people are growing in these areas. I currently grow Bungalow palms, livistona chinensis, bismarkia, robellina, trachycarpus fortunii and waggies, chaemadorea, and many cycas, dioone and encepalartus. Here is a picture of part of my garden.
      I would be interested in hearing how other people decide on what to try apart from the obvious desperate "must have this plant" garden urge.

      Any lessons on Sabal fronds collapsing? This one is growing in Bethany Beach, DE and has been in ground for about 4-years...seems very healthy...new growth fronds are huge...any advise appreciated...just want to rule in or out any nutritional deficiencies...they collapse at the petiole...most other fronds seem strong.

      Good morning folks...these updates will seem a bit boring but...
       
      That Sabal Minor seed I sprouted (first palm seed I’ve ever sproutEd) is getting a second strap leaf!

      and...my Brazoria is getting a trunk!...I think...

      Anybody have any experience with Brazoria in zone 7? Have been back and forth with mine but the mild winter last year and wet summer this year really gave it a leg up...Looking for any expertise...
