Well it has been about a year... so here is an update on this palm.   Picture is from the second story of my house, and the Jubaea seen to the right of the JXS is likely twice the age (if not more) of the JXS.  Its growth rate is just insane.

Hi Beau,

So I posted these pics before of my Jubaea x Syagrus as of this year, the large one has been in the ground about 6 years and the small one believe it or not is the same age it just languished in a pot for too long and only went in the ground last year. The girth of the trunk of the large JxS is about 28 inches and has a circumference of over 7 feet.  My soffits are about 7 feet off the ground so that might give some perspective, I estimate the tip of the tallest frond to be around 18 feet maybe thereabouts.  The crown spread is about 23 feet.  I am hopeful maybe it might flower this year I'll have to wait and see.  I know there are several of this cross growing in the south east and all over the USA and beyond. Maybe others can share their pics.

Patric Shaffer generates these crosses but I have not seen this hybrid on his recent availability palm lists. But you can contact him and see when he might next have them available. They are basically about 2 blades of grass for about $150 and the slightly larger ones where going for $225, so they are not cheep, however they are rockets once in the ground.

Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately!), he no longer lives there. I hope the current owners don't take the saw to it too early... I would give it all summer.

I dug my much smaller ones out of the ground, which I now regret. The smallest one looks okay, but the bigger one looks rough. I thought these would transplant as well as mules, but I guess I was wrong. :( We'll see.

Crazy, didn’t realize he had moved. I guess that explains the lack of posts from him.

I bought his other one, and subsequently sold it 6 months later. Talking to him it sounded like that was his dream home, but plans change.

You SOLD it OH MY... It May be the only known one left in TX? I sure hope they SAVED it from the Freeze even if they had to place it under the covers of their bed to keep it a JUBILATION!!!

Hey, I just decided two months ago I wasn’t moving or know I wasn’t dying.

Now, where just to put it…. and what is it going to turn into. They are a bit variable, and it’s having a potassium or other issue. I am working on it, and it’s working on giving me some new fronds. So we are working it out. 
 

Thank you!

      The first two were crosses performed by me, crossing Cycas revoluta with diannanensis and Cycas revoluta with multifrondis.  I currently have several dozen of each.  These are $10 each
      The third was done by another, crossing Cycas revoluta with guizhouensis.  I currently have only six of this one available and are $15 each
      Shipping for USPS priority calculated from 32211 based on how many plants ordered.  Depending on number ordered they will ship either in the recycled bottle they are currently growing in or will be bare rooted and packed in damp peat and wrapped.  I try to keep box length under 22" to avoid a surcharge.
      PayPal preferred....message me if you're interested.  Thanks!

      Hi there,
      let’s discuss the mechanics and limitations of crossbreeding palms to creat new hybrids.
      i found this video showcasing a lipstick palm hybrid and be keen to hear from you about your experiences on how this is done:

      So I had a couple of hours spare and challenged myself to see as many palms as possible in the Richmond area of London, which is in the southeast of capital. I have put together a photo-documented record of palms in this vicinity of the city and their progress up to now.
      First up, Butia Odorata…





      This Jubaea is something else



       
      The Brahea Armata is getting bigger


       
      Butia Yatay

       
      Parajubaea Cocoides growing under the Yatay

       
      Chamaerops Humilis


       
      Trachycarpus



       
      Trithrinax Campestris

       
      Washingtonia and smaller Jubaea


       
      Yucca Elephantipes, one of the most common exotic plants in London


       
      Typical London CIDP



       
      I had to visit the two Kew/Richmond Robusta’s up close. The neighbour’s front yard has had all the big Trachy’s and Chamaerops cut down though!





       
      Another Brahea Armata



       
      It was a mild early February day in southeast London…



       
      Trachy’s aplenty…


       
      CIDP’s aplenty too…



       
      Terrific washingtonia lurking down a side road in Mitcham…


       
      Spotted a few more CIDP’s as well…


       
      I actually missed quite a few palms off, but I can’t complain given the decent haul I managed to view  and photograph still, all in the space of about 2-3 hours. That also included a stop at Richmond Park for lunch too, so it was a fairly productive visit.

      All of these ones are in London only. I will do a second upload for the other UK ones because there are already too many for London alone.
      Starting with the Jubaea's first, these ones are located in Richmond, southeast London...





       
      Street view Jubaea's...


       
      Here is the Jubaea at Chelsea Physic Garden in central London, which I visited over the summer...


       

       
      Battersea Park Jubaea's in central London...



       
      North London Jubaea with big Washingtonia Filifera...

       
      Some smaller London Jubaea's on street view...


       
      Now onto the London Butia's, of which there are many to document. Here's the one at Chelsea Physic Garden next to that Jubaea I posted before...















       



       
      This Butia is located in Chumleigh Gardens which is in Burgess Park, south London...

       
      This CIDP is located right next to the Butia above, in Burgess Park, south London. You can see the Butia in the background. It is yet another London CIDP that I haven't even posted before yet. These are not recent images either. This CIDP photo from Chumleigh Gardens is 5 years old now, so it will be much, much bigger, as will the Butia...

       
      11 Monmouth Road, London...

       
      These are in Richmond, southeast London...


       
      Butia Yatay, Richmond

       
      Butia hybrid? Central London...


       
      I can't remember what part of London this Butia is located in? I know I have seen someone post it on here before though, a few years back. 

       
      This one is in Wisley Gardens on the outskirts of southeast London...


       
      Strange planting in central London...
       
      Again these ones are just London so far. I've probably missed a bunch. I will upload the Jubaea's and Butia's from the rest of the UK soon, as well as any other London ones that I forgot.

      I have a number of Aloe species growing in my front area and often get volunteers from some of the smaller ones, but this particular plant looks different than the others.  The primary one that I get seedlings from is my Aloe microstigmas.  I actually assumed this was just another one when it first started to come up, but its leaves are much thicker.  I've dispersed seeds from some of my larger species, such as Aloe ferox, africana and marlothii, and while this does remind me some of small ferox and marlothii, neither of them match up to what I remember mine looking like as small plants.  So perhaps its a hybrid given the numbers of Aloe species I frequently have in bloom at the same time.  Bees and humming birds love all the Aloes and will travel from plant to plant.  I'll probably be excavating this to pot up soon, as its growing in a spot I don't really want it to.  I'm curious if anyone has any small A ferox, marlothii or africana that they have photos of for comparison as I don't recall what mine looked like when at this size.
