Butia capitata different views

Recommended Posts

Palm crazy

It is interesting to me how different a palm can look from different angles.

Here my B. capitata one year in the ground now.

The last one almost looks like Butia x Jubaea but it still the same B. capitata.

It's very green... and also the leaf bases. Are you sure it's no ButiaxJubaea or some other Butia?

One of the reason I picked this little fella was he was totally different from the others I’ve seen with the usual grey silver look with the reddish leaf base.

Hoping it turns out to be ‘relax leaf’ but so far not seeing it. I don’t think its a BxJ, just an unusual green variety butia. Time will tell…Green ones are more rare on the west coast and even more rare in PNW… B)

Taitungensis X Guizhouensis Hybrid (by Chumley) is the cycad. Easy to grow and very cold hardy. Real winner for zone 8/9. Those leaves are 40”inches long.

This butia is also growing in afternoon shade and with a mild protected stop won’t take long before is out grows it’s space. LOL!

Thanks Will, will keep y’all posted on it progress.

Ed here a pic for you. Starts flushing at much cooler temps than most cycads.

Good show --- I pollinated some C. revoluta x taitugenisis with C. guihoenziz and C. diananensis pollen and have simular plants many are volunteers. --- I am hoping to have a nice forest of them in the comming years souped up with hybrid vigour as you are learning . mbnb

Best regards on your garden

      Hi everyone,
      This is my first post here on palmtalk. My favorite palm is b. Alfredii. This is a report dedicated on how the B. Alfredii reacts to the cool climate of Northern Europe.
      I live in Rotterdam, Netherlands which is hardiness zone 8 in Europe. The average anual extreme minimum here is -10 Celsius (14 Fahrenheit) for the last 5 winters.

      Yes, indeed…a few Brazoria seeds forming…I see now how it works on this palm…one male stalk and one female, same palm. Let’s see what I end up with this fall…Question: Should I winter the seeds outside in a dry cabinet then sprout in the spring? There aren’t very many but if I have any to share I will once I see what makes it to fall.

      Does Butia Catarinensis have a glaucous, bluish cast to it?

      Little 2 leaf seedling no big deal….Just wanted to move the pot over in the bed it was sitting on and definite resistance…slowly pulled the pot straight up, somehow didn’t break the root, and out comes this monster!!Then took it out of the pot and it did a complete 360 around the bottom of the pot before it found its way outUnreal, true desert palm, drilling deep for water, easily add another 6” of depth if it didn’t circle the pot first. Has to be a factor in their overall hardiness as wellInto a deep pot ya go

      What are the light requirements of a spring sprouted Butia…it’s pushing out its second strap leaf and is in full sun…it was a fortuitous find and I want to treat it properly.
