Care & Size Guidance
Butia odorata is quite tough and hardy, though it does best in free draining soil, that’s plenty fertile, situated in full sun to part shade.
It thrives best in milder parts of the UK, and should be protected from wind if planted near the coast. Make sure to avoid any overly damp or waterlogged soil, and feed regularly.
