Butia capitata is a variable, single-trunked feather palm from South America that has proved to be reasonably tolerant of cool, wet conditions, displaying some winter hardiness, often without damage. It typically has greenish grey-blue, strongly arching leaves with their leaflets held in a pronounced V shape, giving the palm a particular grace and elegance that belies its size. The name Jelly Palm relates to the edible fruit flesh, fibrous, sweet and remiscent of apricots, that is sometimes made into a sweet jellies and jams. Some geographic populations are argued to be a different species, Butia odorata.

I ordered a Butia Odorata (used to be Capitata) in a 15 ltr pot. I also phoned to check stock and ask if the plant was in good condition. It arrived by noon next day! A super specimen, in excellent condition looking fresh as a daisy (...well as a palm). A very good sized plant too. Nice people to deal with and wouldn't hesitate to use again. Recommended.

We purchased the 150cm 30cm trunk size. The palm is stunning, looks unlike any other palm, with gorgeous curving silvery green fronds. Looks lovely just as it is in the pot. Would highly recommend the Palm Centre, after several pleasing purchases. Thank you

The 7.5 L plant is a good size for the price. It has a nice blue-green colour, and elegant fronds. Properly packaged and delivered, I was very pleased. I can't wait for it to grow, but I will be making sure it's well protected for the first few winters!

Real healthy looking plant delivered very well packaged, shame about the courier driver who was rude to the point if I had taken delivery and not my Wife he would have gotton more than my signature. Until the Palm Centre change their courier I shall not buy anymore plants. 5 Stars for the palm, 0 stars for delivery making 2 Stars as an average. Sorry Palm Centre you have lost a customer due to one bad courier driver.

I bought a 30ltr Jelly Palm 3 years ago from the Palm Centre and have really looked after my palm. I used the palm fertilizer and John innes compost. During the cold months I wrap the fleece around the crown only(as palm now too big! Nearly 8 foot!).

This Palm is a must for the exotic garden, as it stands up well to snow and hard frost once established. Below minus 10 I would suggest wrapping the palm in fleece to protect the growing point, but does seem to appreciate plenty of water during the summer months at this tends to produce several near fronds in one seasonal. Truly a magical palm, but make sure you plant it with plenty of space as my Butia in my Norfolk garden has now produced a decent size trunk in ten years.
