Syagrus coronata X S. picrophylla F1
A superbly elegant first-generation hybrid between Syagrus coronata, which shares its robustness and vigor, and S. picrophylla, which gives it incomparable elegance and fast growth. The resulting plants are very consistent in appearance and display excellent ornamental qualities, superior to both the parents, producing a slender palm with flowing, dark green, strongly arching leaves. Like either parent it will do well in both tropical and warm-temperate climates and finds room in any garden due to its manageable size. The smallish seeds frequently have 2 embryos and will germinate easily within a few weeks.
