Pygmy Butia Palm

Recommended Posts


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?

I live in zone 7b and would love to have a Butia that size so that I could easily protect it in extreme cold weather.

      I had this Sylvester palm transplanted about three weeks ago. I would like an opinion about how my tree is looking and any suggestions to help care for it. The yellow/brown leaves are making me nervous. 
      I had a large oak tree removed about six months before planting the palm. It was planted a few feet away from where the trunk of the oak was, but the oak tree was huge and roots were everywhere. Some even had to cut out when the palm was being transplanted 
      I have not used any fertilizers yet. I live in northern Florida and we have not had much rain lately. I’m still watering daily. 
      thank you for everyone’s help

      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:
