Butia capitata, also known as the Jelly Palm or the Pindo Palm, is a beautiful feather palm, and a stunning addition to a Mediterranean or tropical themed garden, with amazing, fan-shaped fronds which form graceful arches from the trunk.
This specimen palm is 1.2m tall when we ship it to you, so it's already one of our largest palm trees and ready to make an instant impact on your patio or balcony! Just imagine sitting under the tropical leaves as you sip on a cocktail in the summer!
Hardy down to -5C when established, larger plants fare much better in UK winter, so we've selected the largest size we can for you to plant in a warm, sheltered site, preferably near a south facing wall. We also recommend protection from any severe weather as frosts and cold winds can shred the leaves.
Winner of a prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be guaranteed that this is a garden-worthy plant that has been trialled and tested for its suitability to grow in UK gardens.
Supplied as an established potted plant, already approx. 1.2m tall (including pot), Butia will ultimately reach a height of around 4m in the UK with a spread of around 1.5m.
