Mule Palm

(Butyagrus nabonnandii)

The Mule Palm is hardy to about −10 °C (14 °F). It is a man-made hybrid between the Butia palm and Queen palm and is one of the hardiest feather palms. It combines the hardiness of the Butia palm with the fast-growing, tropical fronds of the Queen palm.

Mature specimens are quite rare due to the difficulty in producing this palm and the characteristics and cold tolerance of the palm is variable with each specimen. Many of them resemble coconut palms.
