Butia capitata x Jubaea chilensis
Has anyone seen or grown this palm before? I'd like to see what it looks like.
Butia capitata x Jubaea chilensis seems to be a winner. It's hardier than a Butia, faster growing than a Jubaea, very large, and most impressive. I think it has a good shot at growing here. Although less common than mule palm, this hybrid has been done numerous times in the past and is sporadically available through mail order and other sources. Butia x Jubaea is frequently, but not always, self-fertile, capable of producing its own F2 hybrid seedlings.
