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.
