That’s where I got mine from. Two years ago I think. 

Yours in the ground?

Nope, thinking of planting one at my folks place this spring. My new house is finally under construction. Not sure if I’ll get palms in the ground this year or not :rolleyes:

I know what you mean. Right now I have a giant hole in the ground with concrete footers and that’s it :crying:. This ran has been delaying everything. Not seeing us get in before July most likely August.

Here's my Litoralis, I thought it's been in the ground longer, but my photo records show it's been in the ground two years!

Tiki head is two feet tall for reference....

Does costa farms propagate litoralis or santa cat? Could some be stuck in with the regular queen 3-gal stock? I buy up all their smaller queens from big boxes when they go on clearance..

      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.

      Was watering and weeding this morning and noticed the wet, sunny Needle and the Brazoria trunks’ have really grown…the needle in height and the Brazoria in diameter. There are two other Needle trunks behind the one in the photo that are pretty tall as well, though lagging behind the one here.

      The Brazoria trunk really thickened as it pushes two flower spikes and four new fronds…by season’s end it will have four fully released fronds…given its slow history, this is amazing…guess that taproot finally reached its destination…

      Happy to have a Needle clumping palm that is establishing a trunk since zone 7 doesn’t harbor a climate for a variety of trunking palms…same for the trunking Brazoria…these are two that can have their trunks shown off, if you have the time to wait…Question for you Texas folks…generally speaking, how did Brazorias do during the freeze? Do they seem to rank among the survivors?
