Trachycarpus princeps hybrid


Raniked

Recommended Posts

Here's mine. I planted it out in March. It grows well if it gets a little sun or warmth but in the last weeks we've had nothing but rain and grey sky..so not much movement. I'd like to know whether there actually is a princeps hybrid or if it's just a princeps from some other location..

But yours looks more like nova to be. Where did you buy it?

I also have three of these from Gardenpalms/Mypalmshop, they are called there Princeps New Form. As young plants they are variable in leave shape and colour, the three plants I have look very different from each other. Don't know how they will develop look when bigger. They are very fast growers compared to Princeps and first signs of its cold resistance also look good. Don't know wether this a new princeps from a different location or a hybrid, whatever it may be I think it is agreat Trachycarpus wich defenitly deserves more attention.

That's not princeps, princeps is totally white underneath. You have nova.

You can really see Princips in some of these crosses. I have a true Princips and it is very slow for me.

Axel I think they look different from Nova, there is much more similarity with Princeps. I have a Nova that is a little bigger but it has never looked like this. Some think they are a hybrid between Nova and Princeps. Len that is why I think that they bring the best of both worlds: Princeps look and fast growth.

Alberto, Solothurn is in Switzerland about halfway between the capital Bern and Basel which you might know. I forgot to add the country in my profile:-) By the way I have no idea what zone I'm actually in.. Record low in the last ten or fifteen years has been -16.5.

My palm also comes from gardenpalms so it should be princeps new form/ hybrid. It is more slender than my princeps and the petioles seem even thinner.
