Mo ... just joking... I wish I could grow Rhododendrons in my garden but the imported soil I have is not acid enough for them. Camellias grow OK in it though. They appear more forgiving. :D

Yes Stan. I acquired three off JohnP when he was a palm exporter a few years ago. He is the one who tends to wear cardigans or loud jumpers. I gave one away and have two in pots. They are not going to be as hardy as Butia. I've never subscribed to the hybrid vigour as I've not seen any evidence to support this. As I said I have two butyagrus. One is growing slowly and one is growing a tad faster. I attribute this to neglect. I sort of plant things and let them get on with it.
