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.

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.

      Anyone having any luck with pure Butia in central Texas? Initially several of the largest in the area looked like they had some green in the center. However, now more than a month later they look worse. These experience around 5F. I must have had too much faith in their cold hardiness?
      Should they be trunk cut now that the green is fading? I am asking for someone who has 7 nice ones that is hesitating. Copper fungicide applied and last checked a couple weeks and only 1 spear pulled then.

      Was passing through Macon Georgia last week, and was surprised at some of the palms. Spent around an hour driving around. One place called AP's Hidden Hideaway Restaurant on 4275 Broadway Dr, had some tall Washingtonia Robusta, especially for interior GA.  Quite a bit of winter burn, 30 - 50% of fronds were fried, most fronds had some burn.

      Tallest ones here,

      Some of the worst burn on these,

      These three seemed more like filibusta. thicker trunks and all, and considerably less burn.

      Couple more, volunteer on the bottom right.

      In Washington Park in downtown Macon, were a couple very old Sabal Palmetto, I talked to a few people in a palm forum on FB and they said those palms were there and around the same size 1980s, so these were probably planted at least in the 1940s

      Love that Lolipop Look.


      Quite a few volunteers in the park, two of which were adult palms.


      Across the street from this park, was another large volunteer, growing in a sidewalk.  Shows how long the old ones have been there.

      Quite a few other interesting palms around town, the Hideaway also had quite a few Chinese Fan palms, mixed in with pindos and Washys.




      Plenty of nice pindos around too.


      Nice one in Downtown

      Plenty of other great sabals around too.






      Lots of nice Trachycarpus around, but only got to take photos of these two big ones.


      Young Washingtonia in downtown, looking great.

      Small Chinese Fan in downtown,

      The Hideaway had tons of large Sago Cycads too, total of over 40 sagos at least.




      One even naturalizing. 

      Speaking of volunteers, the downtown region had plenty of sabal volunteers, clearly palms have been present for quite some time.




      More Sagos around town, plenty of big ones.




      Keep in mind I only looked around for about an hour, so this is only the tip of the palm iceburg in Macon

      I was going through old pics and came across this unusual palm I took a photo of at Silver Springs.  At first I thought Phoenix Roebelenii, after a closer examination it looks like an old pygmy Butia.  It's a sweet looking palm and wanted to share.  I would like one for myself now.  What do you think?

      Hi Everyone. I got these two Butias a year or two ago. They were together in a bag, but not labeled. The grower said that they were an unused one but couldn’t remember the species. It now appears that they are two different ones. Or is the purple colour not an identifying feature?  The purple one doesn’t appear to have signs of spines but the green one does. Any ideas on what it could be?

      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.
