Butia capitata var. odorata

Jelly Palm

The most common Butia in cultivation

This feather palm is native to a large part of southern Brazil and Uruguay. It grows in open areas or cerrado vegetation on sandy soils. The non-cerrado populations in Southern Brazil growing on the coast in sandy soil clearly differ, and should be considered a separate species. See Butia catarinensis. They form the world's largest remaining stand of wild Butias in Rocha, Uruguay.

The palm grows to 6m tall, although in cultivation it can grow considerably higher. It is very frost resistant, and established good sized plants have been known to survive -10C, or even to recover from lower temperatures when damaged, although protection during such spells of cold is highly recommended.

The palm is still common in gardens of South Brazil where it is grown for its sweet fruits.

Butia nabonnandii (Butyagrus)

Feather palm

Palm beauty - Butia and Syagrus together

This beautiful palm is the result of Butia species being pollinated by Syagrus romanzoffiania. It is extremely frost hardy and provides the best chance to grow a coconut look-alike in the North of Europe.

The palm is sterile, hence its nickname the 'Mule palm'. All palms must therefore be produced by painstaking hand pollination and are therefore rather expensive.
