Eventual Plant Size


Butia capitata, the Jelly Palm. This is a stunning feather palm from South America, which is becoming more and more popular due to its remarkable hardiness. It produces large fleshy fruits (which are very tasty) after a good hot summer.

It will need some winter protection when it is young, especially in the colder parts of the country but is generally a very tough palm.

  • Eventual Size:3 to 4 metres tall, about 2 metres wide.
  • Position:Full sun and sheltered from cold winds.
  • Foliage:Evergreen.
  • Habit:Single trunk, with arching feather-like leaves.
  • Soil:All soils, but avoid waterlogged areas drought tolerant once established.

    Beautiful exotic looking palm very different to what we currently have, transaction was quick and hassle free and plant came very well protected. Thoroughly recommended, we have just ordered a large Cordyline as well!
