Trachycarpus wagnerianus (fem) X T. nanus (masc)

Recommended Posts

Jost

I know from Martin Gibbons about the reverse hybrid Trachycarpus nanus (fem) X T. wagnerianus (masc)

it is easy to dust a Trachycarpus nanus . I have about 50 this way.

dusting a T.wagnerianus (fem) is not easy because of a genetic defect of the wagnerianus bloom.

7 years ago I was successful in dusting a waggie with nanus pollen!

Sorry , I have one plant only.

Who will try it again ?

Best wishes Jost

Hello Jost,

Two years ago I pollinated my female Waggie with fresh Nanus pollen.

The result was 120 seeds, of which only five germinated.

To be sure that they they are the Nanus cross, I have to wait and see how the leaves look like.

Last year I did the same with the Waggy and a Fortunei, used pollen out of the fridge from a year before.

The Fortunei gave 65 seeds of which 35 are already germinating.

This time the Waggy aborted the seeds after three month's, probable because there where not enough seeds on the palm to keep it going.(+/-25 seeds only, by the lack of pollen).

I like to try again next year, this year my female Fortunei and Waggy gave no flower stalks.

It is for me difficult to get pollen of Nanus, I have no mature plant, could you help me out next year Jost?

This to find out if the theory concerning the genetic defect on the female Waggy flower is right.

Kindly Regards Ad

Hi Ad ,

thanks for being interested in breeding trachycarpus species.

I have 2 adult masc. T.nanus and in a year or two some more

nanus , I hope so . Additional I try to buy some more adult masc.

nanus. Keep an eye on your 5 hybrids . We shall help us one another

next year ....if enough pollen is available.

Take care ,

Jost

PS. I am near the dutch border . I live in Tecklenburg

T. wagnerianus X T. princeps would be very interesting. It would be nice to get the leaves of waggy with the white undersides of princeps. Maybe there will be mature princeps in the next few years.

Hello Jost,

I live in Hoorn in the north-west of the Netherlands, this is about 270 km from your place.

So still quite a distance.

As soon as the seedlings show interesting features I will post a photo.

I got a few seedlings of NanusXWinsan from Garry, I have never seen a Trachycarpus seedling growing so fast.

I will post a photo later in the summer,

Kindly Regards Ad

Dear Jost,

WaggyXNanus first divided leaf is coming.( first photo left)

Not sure that it is the real thing yet.

Have to be patient and wait for more growth.

All these seedlings germinated around March 2012.

The NanusXWinsan is growing very fast!

FortuneiXNanus seedlings are from this year.

Regards Ad

Ad,

The Nanus X Winsan look fabulous, The once I have are much smaller than yours.

Winsan is a fast grower and a hybrid with winsan much more faster than the normal Winsan.

Hi Aldert ,

thanks for the hybrid pics. the hybrids look very healthy and the shape is much more better than the species Nanus .

here is my Update 15.07.13 from my 7/8 year old w X n .

I hope it will develop a small trunk

Update on the WaggyXNanus.

It seems to be the real thing, leaves are increasing and look like Nanus.

How about yours Jost, post a recent picture please.

Naggy compared to Wagnus.

Leaves are smaller, flower stalks more tiny.

      I've been thinking of planting one soon.  and like to know if anyone else has any experience with them in the PNW? Good or Bad results.

      Are there distinguishing characteristics for this Trachy? I’ve read they have thicker trunks and bright yellow tips on their more rigid leaf segments?

      Don’t talk much about my Needle palm but it’s really grown into a nice three larger, two smaller clump of trunks...three trunks are about 12” and the other two are smaller but it’s gone from about a 3’ high by 2’ wide in-ground experiment in 2014 to a 5x 5 picture of health today...what a fantastic cold hardy palm. Aside from a bit of protection its first winter, it’s faced every winter on its own. Surprisingly, the main trunk died a couple years after planting but the suckers prospered...
      First winter:


      Somewhere in the middle:


      To present:




      Anyway, sitting at the base of a slight slope, it gets a fair share of runoff and I dug some depressions around it to collect even more water...it’s good for the basjoo, too...I highly recommend Needles but keep the needles in mind where pets and children are concerned...they’re vicious...but in the right zone and situated in the right place, a reliable and dependable choice for cold hardy palm growers.

      This past Sunday my husband and I visited Naples Botanical Garden for our anniversary. Among the many palms we saw was this (these?) apparent twin Sabals that are joined at an extra wide trunk ~5' tall, then separated into two separate crowns. I saw no plaque identifying what species of Sabal it (they?) are or anything about them. I am not sure of the species but the sight was so unusual I took the following photos. I have seen photos of solitary Sabals that split into two crowns due to damage but they have normal solitary trunks up to the split. This palm has an extra wide trunk with a "valley" between two halves all the way up to where the crowns separate, as if two palms grew together to form one. Very odd. Anyone else seen this?

      There is a perimeter of fronds on my Trachy that have very pronounced yellow segment tips...the newer fronds above this line are clear of any of it. The lower fronds have always had a slight case of it but it’s more pronounced on this ring of fronds...it’s gotten two Palmgain feedings this season...wouldn’t concern me except it’s so pronounced but only occupies about two inches of the segment edge...
