Default What is a Hybrid Palm Tree?

New to the palm tree thing... My name is Charles and I would like something for where I live. I live in New York and I want a few palm trees for my house. Any suggestions? Would a Hybrid palm tree be better, whatever it is?

Default The flame thrower palm is nice however

It would not tolerate where you live Charles. I would suggest something a bit more cold hardy such as the windmill palm, or the takil, or Pindo palm trees are good as well. The sago palm but that is a Cycad. and there are many others. A hybrid is when two different palm trees polinated each other and the female produces fruit which will contain a seed that will there for turn into a new species of palm. This takes a while. You would be better off with a cold hardy palm.

Best of luck

Realpalmtrees RPT has a bunch of cold hardy palms and there's a few other places but in my opinion I don't fee like i can trust those other ones.
