Ranking Hybrid Palms in Terms of Cold Hardiness

Recommended Posts

_Keith

Best give that yatay mule some room. It is the fastest growing hybrid on my property. It got big in a hurry and I gave it no special care.

Excellent. Lots slower than the BxPJC according to Patric, however. :hmm:

I guess I need to break down and get a BxPJC when the budget allows.

If you find a place that does sell it, fill us in. I can't seem to find one anywhere.

I got one from Patric on Tuesday. He has both regular odorata/capitata and paraguayensis hybrids, if you are looking for a smaller plant.

Man that pic of Patricks b x Parajub is off the chain! I wonder if that is odorata or Paraguayensis. I have 2 paraguay x cocoides from him. If they will end up like that one, they will win out for the premium poolside spot on my new lot.

I'm really fond of my Jubea X syagrus. I can wait to get it in the ground.

Also my yatay X Q, Butia Poni X queen, Yatay X Jubea, Jubea X Butia Viroel blonde, and Bx PJC are all making strides here in San Diego. They are all in 15 gal pots except the JxQ is in a 5 gal and all are growing fast.

It didn't happen, without pictures. :yay:

Ben, do you know if that pic of Patrick's Butia x Parajub is odorata or paraguayensis? It is a gorgeous palm. I have 2 of the paraguayensis hybrids.

I don't know, no. All I know is I have both - so I'll get back to you on the differences in 5 years. :)

10-12 in ground, of various cocoid types. More in the greenhouse and working on germinating some as well. All fun stuff!

I agree with Keith. I bought a small seedling from patric last year and now it has completely rooted out a 15 gal and is 4' tall with a pretty fat base.

So awesome! I would not try a BxPJ in my climate (I wish).. but I would attempt a yatay mule from some of the info I have been reading...

They are going to be very nice additions.

Thanks man! It's my second Yatay mule. Now I just gotta figure out where I am going to shoe-horn these guys in.

By the way, guesses on the age of the large BxPJC above?

I'll guess 3 years. I bought a BxPJ Sunkha from Patric on Oct. 30. I'm hoping it grows as fast as yours (whatever speed that is).

Not quite that young. But it's only been in ground 5-6 years there - so still pretty amazing growth.

Gosh, I looked at Patrick's picture again and I am starting to wonder why I am trying to grow any other pinnate palms in 9a.... that thing is awesome.

      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.
