Butia capitata

Jelly palm

Moderate leaf loss
Butia capitata
  • Solitary
  • Hardy to -10 °C
This palm will tolerate -12oC for limited amount of time. Needs very good winter protection. May be grown with care outside. Sometimes is damaged at the growth point and can then die off. The best thing is to protect it with electrical thawing wire or christmas lights. In the mild winter of 2000/2001 the B. capitata in our garden lost it's growth point, but in august new growth appeared! Our wet conditions damaged it badly, though. The next winter was fatal. Grows rather fast.
