Pinanga "Purple Haze"

Recommended Posts

Kaname-kun

A wholesaler/grower in South FL is offering what they call Pinanga "Purple Haze," which they say is a hybrid. Anyone know anything about this? It looks like it has some P. speciosa color in it, but the fronds are more upright and smaller and the new shoots seem to be pink. (Interesting choice of varietal name, since I believe "Purple Haze" is the best-known marijuana hybrid in the world.)

Never heard of it but it looks awesome. Does look to have different colors in the trunk etc. I can’t really tell a difference in the leaf structure.

I am adding more photos here. I'll add photos of P. speciosa later. Dramatically different leaf structure.

And I believe that the cannabis folks co-opted the name from the LSD folks...

Complete WAG but could it be Pinanga caesia? Nice looking palm anyway!

Florabunda is selling this as pinanga sp maroon crown. I have a small one but I think they are the same. They are fast growers and take full Hawaii sun. Purple haze? Lol

Purple Haze best known in the Jimmy Hendricks song was a reference to Acid. This palm has a dark base base to the petioles so I I think that is where the name comes from.

Would also be cool if it smelled like its namesake.

I think you're right!  That was one of my suspicions, but your photos make a good case.

Here's a Pinanga speciosa showing the dramatically beautiful purple and the huge almost drooping fronds.

      A question popped into my mind when I noticed what I believe is a male inflorescence emerging from a Ravenea glauca.  In that this species is dioecious, I wondered if hybridization with other species within the genus is very common when species are grown in close proximity.  I was trying to think if there were desirable characteristics that one might want to pull from two different Ravenea species in a hybrid.  Anyone seen examples of hybrid Raveneas or experimented with them?

      Hello, my friends. Does anybody have a comprehensive list of Chamaedorea hybrids? I know that something like this has been published in Don Hodel's 1992 book. Do you have this list with an update?

      Best wishes
