Very Nice Mule Palm in Orlando

Recommended Posts

Was driving through an established neighborhood in the Dr. Phillips suburb of Orlando and found this drop-dead gorgeous mule palm. One of the things I like about it is that the leaves are perfectly flat and not twisted as seen with many other mules.

Love it! I've noticed quite a few of these popping up, but this one stands out for sure.

looks like leaflets are butia dominant and trunk is nice and smooth, very nice! Mules do have lots of phenotypic variation, its like a box of chocolates.  I dont like the syagrus dominant ones as much as the butia (leaf and trunk) dominant ones.

      So is my Trachy a boy? Pictures aren’t that great but flowers are very yellow...still hoping to see a hermaphroditic flower spike since my other Trachy is very young, has years to go till it flowers and I have no idea if it’s male or female...I know that would be a very rare occurrence but that would be interesting...

      Trachy pushing around 12-flower spikes this spring...I have no other Trachy’s of flower age yet so this is the only one in the immediate area...does the process of flowering sap energy from the palm that would otherwise be used to push fronds and height? Also, in the off-chance my Trachy is both sexes, should I just let the flower spikes form and see what happens? Last year was the first time it flowered but I hacked them off thinking they were a waste of time and energy for the poor, lonely Trachy, but wondering now what the chances are of it flowering with both parents in mind...most of the spike’s pods are beginning to burst out in flower while several others are just emerging about 2+ weeks behind the others...is that an indication of anything...suggestions or info.?

      I started these three rostratas from seed in 2014, at that point I was in the hunt for any cool looking plants that would survive in Tennessee. I had no idea if they would survive long term, but so far they have shown no winter damage over the years. Thought I would share some pics! The first pic is in 2015 when I planted them and the most recent is from last week.

      Hoping anyone growing these can help. I’m picking up 2-5 gallon sabal Louisiana soon, just curious what everyone’s actual experience with them are. Are they just as cold hardy as sabal minor? Do they need to be protected in bad winters? Prone to spear pull? Thanks in advance!!

      Any ideas on what the ailment might be? Interior spears have a fair amount of yellow...one of the fronds that did open up is quite small and blotchy green and yellow...otherwise, the fronds exposed to the winter look great...I sprayed some copper fungicide this evening...tried giving the inner most spear a pull but the palm threatened to rip my hand to shreds...any experience with this specific malady??
