This beauty from altitudes around 1000 m in Southern Brazil is expected to like our cool, humid climate. Differs from B. capitata by it's green leaves and woolly base of the petiole. Growth is rather fast and extends well into autumn.Eexperience with this newcomer shows it's hardiness turns out to be unsufficient. With some artificial heating in winter it will be my first choice palmtree! It appears to tolerate -12oC for short periods. Needs very good winter protection. May be grown with much care outside. Replanted in spring 2018 favoured by global warming ...Max 2m
