Jubeas are massive palms that have some of the most attractive leaves of all palms.  They take a long time to grow big so they sell the juveniles in small pots:   Jubaea_chilensis_02_web.jpg

By the way,how is yours doing in the hot Arizona desert? Mine in pots are still moving right along in full sun. Much tougher palm than people realize. Seems to take both the cold AND the heat.

I thought this might be a hybrid since leaf tips turn down slightly at the ends.  But the Jubaea dominant butia hybrid is a beautiful palm!  I have BxJ and (BxJ)xJ and yours just has more of the jubaea look.  Unfortunately JxB struggle more here, too wet I think.

@aztropic  Went into the ground this last May and has been growing like a champ.  Hard to express how happy this palm makes me!!  Really seems like being seed grown makes the difference here.  Thank you so much for making something like this available here - Phoenix, AZ.  Apologizes to @SailorBold didn't mean to hijack the thread just to provide an update.

@aztropicUpdate photo taken today, tiny but beautiful.  Going to start tracking circumference, stupidly excited to watch this thing grow.

Looks happy and healthy! I've sold about 20 of these over the years,so maybe future Phoenicians will have a few to look at someday.
