Ranking Hybrid Palms in Terms of Cold Hardiness

Best give that yatay mule some room. It is the fastest growing hybrid on my property. It got big in a hurry and I gave it no special care.

Excellent. Lots slower than the BxPJC according to Patric, however. :hmm:

I guess I need to break down and get a BxPJC when the budget allows.

If you find a place that does sell it, fill us in. I can't seem to find one anywhere.

I got one from Patric on Tuesday. He has both regular odorata/capitata and paraguayensis hybrids, if you are looking for a smaller plant.

Man that pic of Patricks b x Parajub is off the chain! I wonder if that is odorata or Paraguayensis. I have 2 paraguay x cocoides from him. If they will end up like that one, they will win out for the premium poolside spot on my new lot.

I'm really fond of my Jubea X syagrus. I can wait to get it in the ground.

Also my yatay X Q, Butia Poni X queen, Yatay X Jubea, Jubea X Butia Viroel blonde, and Bx PJC are all making strides here in San Diego. They are all in 15 gal pots except the JxQ is in a 5 gal and all are growing fast.

Ben, do you know if that pic of Patrick's Butia x Parajub is odorata or paraguayensis? It is a gorgeous palm. I have 2 of the paraguayensis hybrids.

I don't know, no. All I know is I have both - so I'll get back to you on the differences in 5 years. :)

Ben, how many hybrids do you have in your garden?

10-12 in ground, of various cocoid types. More in the greenhouse and working on germinating some as well. All fun stuff!

I agree with Keith. I bought a small seedling from patric last year and now it has completely rooted out a 15 gal and is 4' tall with a pretty fat base.

So awesome! I would not try a BxPJ in my climate (I wish).. but I would attempt a yatay mule from some of the info I have been reading...

They are going to be very nice additions.

Thanks man! It's my second Yatay mule. Now I just gotta figure out where I am going to shoe-horn these guys in.

By the way, guesses on the age of the large BxPJC above?

I'll guess 3 years. I bought a BxPJ Sunkha from Patric on Oct. 30. I'm hoping it grows as fast as yours (whatever speed that is).

Not quite that young. But it's only been in ground 5-6 years there - so still pretty amazing growth.

Gosh, I looked at Patrick's picture again and I am starting to wonder why I am trying to grow any other pinnate palms in 9a.... that thing is awesome.
