Comments and Curiosities

"This is a very nice cross between two very hardy palms: Butia capitata {odorata) and Jubaea chilensis. THe female is Butia. This palm has a massive trunk and is nearly as large a palm as a Jubaea, only faster growing. The trunk and leaves share characteristics of both parent plants: the trunk is massively thick (two adults couldn't reach around it) but some leaf bases tend to remain (compared to the usually smooth trunk of the Jubaea). The leaves are slight recurved and have a bluish cast like the Butia." (Geoff Stein)Editing by edric.
