Several natural hybrids occur in Syagrus, a large, diverse and wide-ranging genus of pinnate-leaved, cocosoid palms from South America and the Caribbean, attesting to the relative ease of hybridization between some of its species. This relative ease of hybridization, along with the highly ornamental nature and cold tolerance of some of its species from southern Brazil, has attracted several collectors and growers who, through hybridization, wish to expand the landscape potential of this useful genus.
