    Scott, these photos are great! Any chance of purchasing seeds or seedlings from any of these you might have?

    Butia hybrids are my fav as it gives some alternatives to what I grow here in Houston.

    What are the Butia's hybridized with? They look like my Butia/Parajubaea cocoides hybrids.

    I hope to have seeds in about 1 month, if I can keep them from being consumed by rodents.

    Steve, They are Butia x Syagrus romanzoffiana. I have had suggestions that the mother palm (Butia) may have Jubaea in its line (extra stamens are found on its flowers and the leaflets have hooks on the ends) I may never know. Scott

    Michael, The "lightening bolt" look seems to pass on to the offspring as well. The 2 Mule palms I have fom this Butia also throw the look ,but not as pronounced. I gave a Butia offspring to a friend and it has the same "lightening bolt" look as the mother palm, and after 9 years it is 2 ft tall to top of its leaves :eek:. Michael if you are ever in the Tampa area stop on in. Scott

    Believe me when I tell you next time I'm in that area, I'll be giving you a ring! I could use some coaching on hybridizing as well. I've already got some Butia's and Queen's planted right near each other :)

    And now the pictures of the offspring palm raised from Butiagrus pictured in post #4 above. This palm is 18 months from seed. Butiagrus palms can produce seed that can sprout. This palm will be relocated to new location this summer.

    Now pictures of Bubutiagrus (Butia x Butiagrus) summer 2007 germinated. The look is not what I expected. Very glossy green leaves,very little to almost no stem fibers and so far leaves have windows ( on 3 non strap leaves ) I think I will do this cross again. I am shocked by the look so far. I used another Butia than the one pictured in post #8 & #9 above.

    Here is a picture of one of my former Butiagrus that looks almost like a Coconut palm. This was my favorite looking Butiagrus. I still hope to produce one like it again someday.

    Dear Scott,

    i talked to you on Palmtalk.
    Amazing photo's of very special hybrids! Especially the Bubutyagrus could be a more cold hardy variety/hybrid of a tropical looking palm. I really envy you and your palms. Also a big compliment to all the work you are doing in creating these palms.

    Greetings from the lowlands of Holland,

    Henri
