Butia capitata, commonly known as Pindo or Jelly Palm, is the hardiest pinnate or feather- leafed palm in cultivation. A central South American native, it is widely used throughout USDA Hardiness Zones 8A- 10B, with many examples into the Carolinas and Atlanta. It exhibits no damage to 14 degrees F and thought to be hardy to 10 degrees F. Considered a slow grower, it is used mostly as a specimen plant, reaching 14'-16' height, with a canopy of 40-50 arching fronds of 4-6' in length. Pindos are considerably variable in nature with forms differing in ultimate height, trunk thickness, leaf color and amount of arching. The very desirable foliage color ranges from blue-green to silver. Once established, Pindos are very drought tolerant and adaptable to a wide variety of soil conditions. It produces an edible yellow to orange color fruit that makes a tasty jelly.
