Beautifull palm you have there, Dick!

The leaflets of your B x P looks more drooping then on my palms. How long are the fronds and middle (longest) leaflets?

Hi Alberto,

Thanks for the nice photos of your hybrids. The palms have grown a lot and so have your kids.

The middle leaflets on my palm are about 25" and the fronds are about 10 feet long. You are very observant as my B X P does have a nice bend or droop to the fronds, more so than any others that I have seen. It seems that subsequent generations of B X P that Patrick has done have stiffer fronds and look more Butia like. This is my first attempt at getting photos on here and they didn't turn out to well. I will try to get some better ones soon and with photos of the spathes and the flowers. My B X P was planted in late summer of 2006.

Dick, I had some of those first BxP from Patrik. I believe the first ones were using a Butia paraguayensis. The first one I grew was also very vigorous and droopy. The seedlings I subsequently received in years 2 and 3 produced a stiffer leaved palm more like Alberto,s. I wonder if he used a different Butia.

Congratulations on your first(?) picture post Dick. Look forward to many more!

Love the BxP.

Here are a couple of photos of my B X P taken April 8,1012.

I measured one frond today: From the base of the trunk to the tip of the last leaflet: exactly 10 feet (122 cm) ,but most of the middle leaflets are 27", but stiff and not arching.................

HI everyone, this is my first post on this forum, these Butia x Parajuaea, they are all Patric's handy work? So are they Butia capitata or Butia paraguayensis and if either is crossed with Parajubaea cocoides would one hybrid cross be more cold hardy than the other? Thanks in advance

Craig.

Craig,

From early in the thread....

That was one of my favorites (of many) palms when visiting your garden in September . The gracefulness of a parajubaea cocoides and the hardiness of a butia Capitata -what a winning combination.

There you are!

Is there anyone producing a SxB reverse hybrid? Does this hybrid result in a more queen looking offspring? I know this has been discussed before, but I thought I would bring it back up and hopefully get some new pictures. I understand that due to the Queens height and difficulty in pollination it is a cross that is normally not done. I, for one, living in the land of tons of Butia....tire of the Butia characteristics and love the hybrids that show little of the butia parentage.

Can anyone post updated photos of the large Butia x Parajubaea Cocoides (BxP) palms featured in this lengthy PalmTalk thread?  Most of the photos here are from 2011.  This includes, but is not limited to, updated photos of:

- Krishna's BxP

- Alberto's BxP

- Ed Brown III's BxP

- Dick's BxP

Thanks all!

      In April 2019 I posted photos of some of my plants.  After two growing seasons many of them have grown a lot.  I have tried to take the update photos from the same perspective, but often this was not possible.  I will post a few at a time.

      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...
