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 .

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.

      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...

      Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum, I'm looking for butiagrus seeds (Butia x syagrus r.), I live in Italy, is there anyone who has them?

      Do Trachy leaves fold to help moderate the environment? I’ve noticed, especially in the winter, the colder it gets, the tighter they close...I know it can be a sign of stress but my Trachy seems to be healthy...it’s leaves have always looked semi-folded...some days more than others...today is dry, sunny and low 80’s...even the Mediterranean Fan tends to be folded, though to a lesser degree...the Needles are wide open and flat...any lesson would be appreciated...

      Hi folks...been a while...Palms seem to be doing well in south facing situation in Springfield, Northern Virginia...this Mediterranean Fan gets a burlap corral and top...just gets a string of C-9 lights around the perimeter at ground level to let a little heat rise. Got it at a local garden center. They had it in a greenhouse...had 3 leaves covered in mites...a little in ground situation, some mite killer and it exploded...I think in ground since 2014...This Brazoria seems way too far north...it suffered the winter before last but last winter was an easy one...just gets a little burlap tent in the winter, no heat...Maybe I’ll add some C-9’s this winter...will enjoy it while it lasts.This McCurtain is the slowest growing thing ever but is finally getting what appears to be a mature leaf...guess it needed several years to sink a root/trunk deep in the ground?This is my baby! In ground since 2014...planted with about a 12” trunk...now 7 feet..and has been through it all...used to be under a Heavy shade large pine tree but we had to cut that down and suddenly it was in full sun...suffered from that a bit but now seems more than happy...the only protection it gets is black frost cloth on the ground to soak up the sun...leaves do really well in the coldest weather...didn’t lose a single leaf all these years to cold...good genetics I guess,Good old stand-by Needle...just lives on its own and never asks for anything...it’s area is moist compared to the others and it seems to like that...

      I have 10 extra Serenoa repens Super Silver seedlings for sale. They are approx. two years old and I germinated them from seeds I got from Christian Faulkner. As this palm is very slow growing after taking months to germinate, you have a chance to bypass several years of waiting to grow one from seed. Silver saw palmettos germinate green and take on their silver-blue coloring as they grow. Info from Palmpedia below:
      http://www.palmpedia.net/wiki/Serenoa_repens
      This SE U.S. native palm is quite coldhardy: down to zone 8. Once considered a noxious weed in its native territory, it is now valued as a desirable component of the ecosystem and a decorative urban asset. 
      Serenoa repens Super Silver: $10.00 each
      Shipping = $10.00 for one plant. Additional plants by quote - ask me.   No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI.
      Payment via Paypal.
      PM me if you are interested.
