Trachycarpus princeps hybrid

Recommended Posts

Who's growing it? It seems nobody knows which Trachy the princeps is hybridize with.

Here's mine. I planted it out in March. It grows well if it gets a little sun or warmth but in the last weeks we've had nothing but rain and grey sky..so not much movement. I'd like to know whether there actually is a princeps hybrid or if it's just a princeps from some other location..

But yours looks more like nova to be. Where did you buy it?

I also have three of these from Gardenpalms/Mypalmshop, they are called there Princeps New Form. As young plants they are variable in leave shape and colour, the three plants I have look very different from each other. Don't know how they will develop look when bigger. They are very fast growers compared to Princeps and first signs of its cold resistance also look good. Don't know wether this a new princeps from a different location or a hybrid, whatever it may be I think it is agreat Trachycarpus wich defenitly deserves more attention.

That's not princeps, princeps is totally white underneath. You have nova.

You can really see Princips in some of these crosses. I have a true Princips and it is very slow for me.

Axel I think they look different from Nova, there is much more similarity with Princeps. I have a Nova that is a little bigger but it has never looked like this. Some think they are a hybrid between Nova and Princeps. Len that is why I think that they bring the best of both worlds: Princeps look and fast growth.

Alberto, Solothurn is in Switzerland about halfway between the capital Bern and Basel which you might know. I forgot to add the country in my profile:-) By the way I have no idea what zone I'm actually in.. Record low in the last ten or fifteen years has been -16.5.

My palm also comes from gardenpalms so it should be princeps new form/ hybrid. It is more slender than my princeps and the petioles seem even thinner.

      I’ve done a lot of complaining about the slow growth rate of my McCurtain and Brazoria Sabals...Granted, they are slow growers anyway but I think I made them even slower by not watering them enough...unless there was a serious drought, I would let the rain do it for the most part. But this year, I’ve taken to watering them by hand 2-3 times a week, regardless of rain and Of course, they are growing at a much faster rate than before. Sounds really stupid, but I was going on the assumption that they take care of themselves. I won’t drown them or lead them into root rot, but a more proactive watering schedule is going to put my complaining in the rear view mirror...I can see the results already! And, I just laid down my first application of Palm Gain so I think, given how wet it’s been around here these days, I’m going to see real growth in all my palms, but the Sabals for sure.

      Last Friday I went to the Ft. Myers palm park by the old railroad museum to collect seeds. I found a plaqued Sabal causiarum loaded with seeds. I know because of the record freeze in TX there is renewed interest in planting Sabal palms because of their cold tolerance. Sabal causiarum is by far the largest of the Sabals as my behemoth specimen on World Famous Sabal Row exemplifies. I was able to pick up seeds at the park but a torrent of rain let loose before I could take photos and I had to sprint for the car. But I have the seeds cleaned and ready to go.

      PM me if you are interested. Tell me how many seeds you wish to purchase and give me your name/address to copy/paste on a mailing label. I will PM back a quote. When you pay, tell me.

      They’re here...they appear to be the right shape and size and they were nice and clean...
      Float test had all but one sink so I guess one floater out of 14 isn’t bad...now the reading starts...any experienced tips welcome!

      Anyone know a grower who sells Butia capitata var. bonnetti? I really want to try a pinnate and this one appears to be a reasonable candidate.

      I have had two of these in the ground for over 15 years now. I have never seen a flower in all these years. How long will they take to flower? They have gotten quite large & I'm about ready to dig them up & sell them as they really aren't very appealing to me...
