Thanks Nick! I can't wait to get Patric's hybrids in the ground next year and compare them to this one. Patric's hybrids have grown a lot in their pots since I got them earlier this year. Didn't you buy a few of his hybrids?

Yeah, that'll be fun to see where you put them. I'm sure they'll take off even more once in ground. 3 of my 4 hybrids have steadily grown. Those 3 being the BJxJ, JxS and BJxS. I believe they're still settling into their new pots, as they haven't even been in their respective pots for a year yet. My first hybrid that I bought, the BxPJc has really taken off. Starting to show true character leaves and everything. I'm really proud of that one since it's my first hybrid and it seems to be growing the fastest. It's been in it's pot for about 5 or 6 months longer than the other 3. I hate to say it, but I can see myself buying more of these hybrids! Any of yours showing character leaves? We bought ours around the same time, I believe. My 3 aforementioned hybrids have been pushing, ehm, hybrid juvenile/adult leaves. Nothing like my BxPJc, yet.

Very nice, I like the bluish colour. So is it a Jutia or a Bubea? ;)

Here is a picture of it that I took earlier today. I placed a fifteen inch ruler next to it for scale. It was sold to me as a J X B, but I have been told by viewers that it is a regular Butia. Regardless, I like the color, and it is faster growing than my other Butias.

I have since bought some confirmed hybrids from Patric and a recent J X B X S (Queen) from another source that I will be documenting too. Thanks for the continued interest in the thread everyone.

Here is a picture of a frond with a fifteen inch ruler. I took this picture today as well.

My JXB F3 looks similar to this and has the twisted fronds... but I was too once worried that it was 'just a butia'...   I have a green butia that is more symmetrical though..so not sure if that is a characteristic.  My JXB palm has fronds that are not as arching.

 

Very beautiful and it is doing well !  Thank you for posting..

Nick you have a green thumb my friend. I live in Florence, SC and have lost two BXPJc I figured they wouldn,t go here but you post makes me want to give it another try.  If I may ask do you protect them in winter? how did you plant them, How much H20? I have BXJ, JXS, BJXS growing nicely but BXPJc not so much.

Hey, Chad. Every single one of my hybrid palms is still in their pots. I'm holding off on putting them in ground so they can perhaps build some cold tolerance so that when I do put them in ground, they'll be as ready as they can be to take on our winters. I have a feeling bxpjc aren't all that cold hardy. I would suspect they could take temperatures in the teens, but they wont be as cold hardy as Mules. But that remains to be seen. How big were yours when you put them in ground? Did you provide any protection?

By the way, I was probably alluding to this but I'll clear it up if there's any confusion... I bring all of my hybrids inside or in the garage when it gets below freezing. They haven't seen a severe freeze yet. And when they go in ground, I will probably protect them as best as I can until they become too large to protect; especially my B x Pjc; I spent way too much money on it for it to die when I could have protected it lol

The one BXPJc was about size of baseball at base the other was size of golf ball at base.  Don't know how old they were.  Had overhead protection but lost smaller one in that severe cold snap winter before last and the larger one during the following summer heat and humidity.  My other hybrids are doing well.  Getting ready to bite the bullet and try a full blood Jubaea.

My JXB looks more like a jubaea!! 

I would love to see how this palm looks now and compare with mine since we have similar soil and weather :rolleyes:

I definitely gotten the sense from all these JxB mule type threads that these hybrids are very variable. I would prefer 1 more Jubaea like except the speed of growth :D

      For sale is the total 2019 crop from my Sabal bermudana: 60+ seeds. I grew my mother palm from seeds I received from a resident of Bermuda in 2008. This rare, very slow growing native of Bermuda is endangered on that tiny island by development. It is shorter - up to 20' tall -  and stockier than S. palmetto but just as cold hardy. It prefers sun and heat but unlike most Sabals, can prosper in areas with cooler summers, i.e., CA, PNW. 
      Sabal bermudana: 60+ seeds @ $15.00 for the lot. One Lot Only
      Shipping: $5.00 in padded envelope. No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI
      Total = $20.00
      Payment via Paypal. PM me if you are interested

      My Needle Palm went from smaller fronds to big fronds over the summer, look at the size of them, and they'll get much bigger! I had to hold the camera way up to get the whole frond in the picture!

      New York City is a high end zone 7b, cold hardy palms are very rare, but they’re there if you know where to look. Tropical palms, however, are all over the place during the warmer months.

      It’s flowering, hopefully it seeds so I can grab them all lol, anyone want a Manhattan Minor?

      So I don't tend to post many picks of hybrids I've purchased from Patric until I get a chance to get an idea of what they will look like. I've always really liked the Yatay mule that @_Keith has that is a showstopper. So I did purchase a few from Patric last year and they are now starting to go pinate.  However in talking with Patric he peaked my interest when he mentioned he had a Yatay X (Mule). Now from my understanding Mules tend to have sterile pollen so it's pretty interesting that patric has pulled this cross off. After a few questions directed at patric and a little digging the mule pollen came from one of two palms that @Gtlevine has in his amazing garden. These mules are the offspring of a huge mule that was created by the late Dr. Wilcox and was sent to HBG in Ca. This mule for some reason has viable seeds, or at least some are. Garry germinated two of them and has them growing in his garden- one of them is the daddy to this hybrid.  (Hopefully I have this linage correct)
       
      So I purchased this palm last year from Patric as a 5g plant. As is par for the course, it arrived in excellent shape and I received it in the end of July 2018. I potted it up into a 15g and it has never looked back since. I have not tested this palm in the cold but I would venture to guess given the genetics that this palm is at least a tad but more cold hardy then a traditional mule which tend to be reliable to the mid to upper teens depending on the genetics of specific plant. Given that this palm should be a tad more hardy. It's not as soft as a mule but not nearly as rigid as a typical butia. My hunch is this might be a great alternative to those who can't quite pull off a mule reliably.  I have this plant in 80% sun.  
       
      Here it is Last July 25th 2018 in a 5g:
