We are thrilled to offer the rare palm hybrid between Butia capitata and Syagrus romanzoffiana. Although the hybrid can be found naturally in the wild, our plants are from cultivated hand crosses. The palm is named for French horticulturist Paul Nabonnand (1860-1937), who first coaxed the plants to mate. The hybrid shows amazing vigor, comparable to syagrus, and will eventually reach 18' in height. Palm growers who have tried these report surprisingly good winter hardiness, often similar to the butia parent. We are trying this for the first time so we don't have any first hand experience. Reportedly, seed produced by the hybrid are sterile unless it is able to backcross to one of the parents. We recommend growing these to a larger size before trying them in the ground.
