As already evident in agriculture, viniculture, and nutraceuticals, hybridization has established its prominence in the world of botany and I would contend that it is still in its infancy with regard to Arecaceae. As this article goes to print, the Mule Palm (xButiagrus nabonnandii), the Coco Queen (Syagrus xMontgomeryana), and the TriBear Palm (Dypsis decaryi x leptocheilos) are all being commercially grown in Florida for domestic use and export. These hybrids are ostensibly utilized in many cold, dry, inland areas where either of their pure “parent species” would otherwise struggle or fail completely. I believe this will ultimately save money on replacement costs, fertilizer, irrigation, and pest control which will contribute to a positive net effect on the environment and thus ultimately benefit the residents of Florida and beyond. I am 12 years into my own research with hybrid palms and I still have much to learn and many projects in the pipeline. I hope many more will join me in this exciting journey into the future of horticulture.
