A beautiful, graceful blue/grey Butia , this tough palm is native to the flat plains of Southern Brazil , Uruguay and Argentina where it experiences hot summers and cold winters. There it congregates in huge populations of trees attaining over 10m (30 feet) in height! We would expect plants in cultivation to attain even greater height eventually. The tree is appreciated locally for its sweet and delicious fruits.
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.
