Super Cold Hardy Mule Palm Trees
While Moultrie Palms has specialized in hybrid mule palm trees for over 14 years, we’re in the middle of cultivating a variant: the super cold hardy mule palm tree! This is a cross between three other palm varieties: the Butia capitata (pindo palm), the Jubaea chilensis (Chilean wine palm), which grows high in the mountains of Chile which together form the basis for our super mule. From there, it is crossed with the Butia capitata (pindo palm) again and the final step crossed with the Syagrus romanzoffiana (queen palm) to form the magnificent Super Mule. Here’s a closer look at these new mule palms for sale in Florida:
