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 am having trouble with differentiating between Sabal x brazoria and Sabal x texensis 'Brazoria' , can someone tell me what makes them different and how different they really are? (Or if they're the same?)

      Hello everyone, so I haven’t seen a lot of coverage of this nature defying experiment but some of the In n Out burger chain restaurants that are new to Colorado have installed the iconic crossed palm trees at some of their locations such as this one of Constitution Ave. in Colorado Springs (Zone 5b\6a). These Sabal palmettos appear to have large gauge pipe heating cables rapped around the trunk and close to the crown. I’m also told they have coiled heat cables in the ground around the roots. They are left completely out in the open, and appear to have been planted in October 2021 (which I think is a terrible time). I don’t know the specific minimum temperature they endured this past winter but I know it was in the single digits on multiple occasions. Our past winter here was extremely dry. We didn’t have any moisture whatsoever from September 2021 to almost January 1st, 2022.  
      Winters are cold here in Colorado! I hope that they were able to make the winter and maybe we could see some growth soon. I would guess the heat cables are kept on 24/7. When I put my hand on the cable it was very warm. The days in Colorado are very warm I don’t think that’s the problem it’s the constantly below freezing nightly winter temps that worry me, they look pretty bad after this past winter. I also know that the In n Out in Thornton (Northern suburb of Denver) also has Sabals planted. I’m curious if anyone has more information, and also what you guys have to say about this incredible sight in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains Ha! Have a look, there’s also yuccas planted in the foreground nearby, my guess is Yucca faxoniana. Thanks guys

      Here in NOVA, the old adage for March, in like a lion, out like a lamb...well, this year, seems more like old man winter stole the end of the month and froze the lamb...windy, mid- twenties tonight and low twenties tomorrow night. Good thing day temps will be in the forties...maybe it’ll freeze some of the  “gumballs” just forming on my sweetgum tree in my front yard...this past season, the tree produced more spiny gumballs than any year in the 30-years we’ve been here. Not to mention the wind that has scattered them to places far and wide, never reached before...but our northern visitors, the juncos and other beautiful sparrows that arrive every fall from Canada to feast on the sweetgum’s millions of tiny seeds, they couldn’t be happier...The tree serves a purpose, but what a mess! Ask the northern migrants and they’ll tell me to mind my own business...
      Palms should be fine but the Medi. has suffered this past winter...weird sort of dieback on the fronds...not fried on the established fronds but fried on the emerging ones...some of the established ones are just turning yellow/brown and looking bad. They are indeed finished, but it’s a shed it’s never had in it’s 7-years in-ground. Summer will tell the story. Maybe I’ll go back to protecting it this winter. I really like that palm.

      Excellent cold hardy palm...somewhat protected needle under a holly tree...

       
      Unprotected needle just as cold hardy but has suffered some segment tip damage. It’s been plastered to the ground three times this winter.

      Had an umbrella over the medi all winter and knew I was pulling it a bit early. It’s not used to this kind of direct hit. However, the pup on the left side has looked far better than the larger parent this winter...uniformly green while the parent culled several fronds and has a few more It’s going to kill. A bit concerned as it has a yellowish look but maybe it’s making room for new fronds coming out. I did fertilize all my palms Saturday...maybe a bit early but my zone’s last freeze estimate is mid April so it should be ok.

      Hello PalmTalk!
      There is going to be a short introduction first.
      My name is Yahor though I prefer you call me by my username and I am from Staten Island, a borough of NYC.
      I don't feel comfy telling people my age, but I am 12-16 years old.
      I first got my interest in palms when visiting Jacksonville Florida last year.
      I want to start growing them.
      So the reason I am making this post is something that has caught my eye for a while.  According to Wikipedia, on the page about NYC's climate, the climate data graphs and classifications section show that  areas of NYC might be in zone 8a.
      LaGuardia has 11 F (-12 C) as the minimum for January.
      Belvedere Castle in Central Park  has 9.8 F (-12.3 C) as the minimum.
      JFK has 10 F (-12) as the minimum.
      Sorry if the pictures look bad
      I find the emotes on the forum funny
