    If you live in Phoenix or near Phoenix, and would like to trial a ButiaXSyagrus in ground let me know. You will need to keep a update on the results of this hybrid with pictures. The palm pictured is ready for a home in the Phoenix area. Cost to you is nothing but your time and care of this hybrid.

    I wish I knew a palm grower in that area. That's a generous offer. However, I dont' even know a palm grower in Arizona, but there has to be some. I'll be keeping my ears open.

    Hi Scott Mcintosh

    An update on the palms you sent.... They are both doing very well and been in full sun all summer (2011). In the summer of 2010 they were in shade and did ok... when put into full sun they both took off. They are fast growing and has not burn at all in the sun :cool:. So they can take full Arizona without a problem.

    As for cold they only have taken mid 20's. The largest palm is in a 15 gal pot and the smaller was in a 5 most of this summer but now in a 15 gal pot too....
