Butia yatay

A beautiful blue/grey Butia , this tough palm is native to the flat plains of Southern Brazil , Uruguay and Argentina where it experiences hot summers and cold winters.
It is very frost resistant , and established good sized plants have been known to survive -10C, or even to recover from lower temperatures when damaged, although protection during such spells of cold is highly recommended.
Trees can reach more than 10m high in the wild , and almost certainly more in cultivation.
The tree is appreciated locally for its sweet and delicious fruits.
