Looks like an extremely shade grown butia.

My guess is a mule palm.

The twisting leaves does looks like a mule or some kind of hybrid. I do have mule palms but it's all green leaves. I did a search online and came up with this palm lable it as butia x jubaea. It looked alot similar to mine in appearance wise. Could it be a butia x jubaea hybrid or just a plain old Butia odorata?

Here is one of mine same size butia odorata for comparison. The leaves are stiff, blue green with an arch and is heavily armed.

Ok. It's a butia but is it possible a hybrid? Trunk is full of fiber and no spikes. 20171217_131828.thumb.jpg.5ff9dfc5b6a311

I have no clue what the above-pictured palm tree is, but it certainly does not seem like a Butia Odorata (pure).  It might be a mule palm, but the PalmTalk experts would know better than I would.

..... Speaking of which, is the photo below a mule palm as well?

That's a mule palm for sure but it seem like it's a double mule or could possibly be a coco queen palm.

My Butia eriospatha has same coloration on the petiols as others mentioned before pure butia! 

Nothing special sorry

Thats a mule for sure.  I still stand behind that the original pic is a regular pindo that is shade grown or naturally wispy , not a hybrid.

Sorry, Xvang, I'm not trying to hijack your ID thread.  Just a quick question:  Is this palm (below) also a mule palm or is it a "coconut queen"?  (I am not even sure what that is). Both of these photos were taken in Gainesville, Florida, by the way.

Now back to XVang's ID question about his Butia hybrid ---- er, sorry, pure Butia.

If your answer, "yes" then the above palm is a hybrid. If "no" then stop posting hybrid palm. What happened to these old days where people actually taking their time help each other id's palms where one need it. I guess this is a waste of time.

Sandy loam, I said there is a possibility that the above palm is a coconut queen. Because the one below look just like it and it is a coconut queen. 00p0p_16QRswkDTY5_1200x900.jpg.de38f815f

About a few weeks ago, I came across this blue palm from a friend of mine. I was pretty shocked and amazed i haven't see anything like it. Picture do no justice of the robustness of this palm. The crown and leaves are as big as a full grown phoenix canariensis and the trunk is over 3 foot wide. The leaflets have z shape tips and about 2.5 inch wide. But we both have no clue what this palm is other than a Butia. Could this be a hybrid or some pure butia?

Bingo!!! You have a winner with that one. That looks exactly like a jxb hybrid- Jubaea as the mother, pindo father.  A few of mine have very nice color as does that one. That is a very fine example of this cross and just appears to have started trunking.

That is a beautiful looking palm. I have never seen a jubaea x butia hybrid that inherited so much blue as this one. The trunk on that thing looks enormous. Looks like it also has the trademark hooks at the end of some of the leaves which is very common in these hybrids.

      I was up the hill from my house taking photos of the sunset and decided to take a picture of this Butia in my friend's yard.  I haven't asked him how old it is and if it was there when he bought the house in 1978.  Which Butia is it?  Sorry I didn't go around to the backyard to get a better photo including the trunk.

      so my butia was in decline along with my other plants this past winter indoors
      a combination of insects, overwatering and underwatering
      the yellowing started during this time
      when it came outside it put out a nice sized leaf but it was yellow as well
      after doing some reading here on the forum i found a thread which recommended adding sulphur to the soil
      Butia capitata yellowing... posted by County Ag Agent
      i have been adding small spoonfuls of sulphur and it has worked to green up the butiathank you!!
      a friend bought two foxtail palms this spring but now the spears are too tall to fit at his place
      looks like i will be plant sitting these two foxtails!
      one spent its summer not too far from me, the other was outside of toronto
      it went through some cold temps which we did not get here in toronto recently
      so some leaves have gone brown on the one
       
      something i found interesting was out of my two mediterranean fan palms the taller one has a skinny trunk and the shorter one has much more gerth
       
      squirrels wreaked havoc on my seedlings.. i will do a final count when they come inside but there were significant losses
      next year i will take precautions to avoid this
      here are some pics of the yard

      I have a large Mule that has been in the ground in its current location since 2016 (see https://www.palmtalk.org/forum/index.php?/topic/48668-moving-a-mule/). 
      It has been growing very quickly and robustly since then, with no indications of any problems that I have seen.  Yesterday I noticed that the newest leaf spear emerging is completely dead and dry (see picture).  The next-oldest leaf to its right appears OK as far as I can tell, though it has not fully emerged yet.
      This is obviously not from cold damage, given that it is now October and we did not even have a real freeze last winter.  Our early summer was slightly rainier than usual, but nothing extreme.
      I'm a little depressed about this, since it has been doing so well for the past 4 years.  I previously had a large Pindo in the same spot for almost 20 years. That one died after initially showing a similar symptom - the newest leaves all emerged dead.  Eventually the whole palm died from the youngest to the oldest leaves, and the trunk decayed into a foul-smelling wet mess. 
      I'm completely stumped about what might have caused this, and whether there is anything I could or should do to save the palm at this point.
      Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

      Quick question about my Mule Palm. So far its been growing great here in the desert, other than a few burnt fronds this summer. Its been putting out a new frond for a while now and I walked out this morning to the Palm looking like this. Is it normal that my new frond is too weak to hold itself up that it just falls over. The frond looks healthy and green. Or is there something wrong with the palms development? I've seen a few Mule Palms at home depot with the same "issue". Thank you.

      After all of these years I finally got to buy a house with over half an acre and now almost all of the palms are planted.
      I am in zone 8a South Carolina above the fall line!
      It is a work in progress so don't judge.
