HYBRID PALM TREES
Hybrid palm trees are developed by cross-pollinating two
different palm species.
The resulting hybrid is typically:
·Faster-growing, ·Less dependant on fertilizer
·More drought-tolerant ·More resistant to pests
·More adaptable to full sun or shade ·More beautiful than its parents.
·More adaptable to different soil types
*NEW* Mule Palm (xButiagrus Nabonnandii)
One of the first
palm tree hybrids, the Mule Palm is a hybrid between the common Pindo
Palm (Butia capitata) and Queen Palm (Syagrus romanzoffiana). It
is fast-growing, extremely drought-tolerant, and bears a slight
resemblance to the common Coconut Palm. It tolerates hard freezes
down to 15 deg F. We have 12ft specimens available by special
Chamaedorea 'Florida hybrid' (C. erumpens x C. seifrizii) This is a bullet-proof palm for an outdoor location in shade or indoors. It is a robust grower, handles low light, and requires little to no fertilizer. Cold hardy down to about 30 deg F.
*NEW* Teddy Bear Triangle Palm; Red Triangle Hybrid; Tri-Bear (Dypsis leptocheilos x decaryi) We engineered this species by cross-pollinating a Teddy Bear Palm and a Triangle Palm. The resulting hybrid is fast-growing, drought-tolerant, handles full sun or shade, requires little to no fertilizer, and handles light frosts. We are the only mail-order nursery in the world to sell this exciting hybrid! (Limit 6 per customer)
*COMING SOON* White Triangle Hybrid (Dypsis pembana x decaryi) This is a new project we are working on. The mother is the palm pictured on the left- a Dypsis pembana from the Pemba Island chain off the east coast of Africa. This is the fastest and toughest clumping Dypsis! We have cross-pollinating this with the Triangle Palm (Dypsis decaryi) in order to create the must sought-after "White Triangle" hybrid. The result should look something like the 2nd and 3rd pictures above. Coco Queen Hybrid (Syagrus schizophylla x romanzoffiana F1; Syagrus xMontgomeryana) This hybrid originated in South Florida. We create our plants through cross-pollination and grow them in limited quantities. It is called a Coco Queen because it comes from two Queen Palm parents- the Arikury Palm (Syagrus schizophylla) and the common Queen Palm (Syagrus romanzoffiana)- and thus looks like a Coconut Palm with a straight trunk. It is very fast growing, drought-tolerant, and handles frost down to about 25 deg F. WAITING TO RE-STOCK *COMING SOON*Silver Lady Palm (Hyophorbe lagencaulis x vershaffeltii F1) For those who live in a Mediterranean or warm desert climate and would love to have a Bottle Palm, this hybrid is for you! It is a cross between a Bottle Palm and a Spindle Palm, both native to the Mascarene Islands. The hybrid features a silvery-purple crownshaft, beige trunk, and graceful dark green fronds. It is more cold hardy than either parents. The Silver Lady Palm in the first picture is only about four years old from a two-leaf seedling! The second picture shows our Bottle Palm in the hybridization process. AVAILABLE 2013
*COMING SOON* Foxy Lady Palm Green (Wodyetia x Veitchia; Wodveitchia) Considered by some to be the fastest palm tree- the Foxy Lady originated in Australia and has been grown in the US for about 15 years. In Hawaii, these can grow 5 feet of clear trunk per year! Our plants are guaranteed to be hybrids, so don't get fooled by the eBay vendors out there. These grow in full sun or shade and handle frost down to 28 deg F. *NEW* Wodyetia x Veitchia; Wodveitchia- Seedlings Variegated Foxy Lady Palm This is the same as the palm above, only with variegation (striping) on the leaves. It is very rare and always in high demand by collectors. Plant these in a half-day sun or filtered shade spot so the yellow parts of the leaves don't burn. Variegation can vary from multi-striped to half-and-half. We do not accept special requests for type of variegation. The nicest plants out of each batch will ship first.
