It is a shrub-like clumping palm, with several stems growing from a single base than can grow up to 4.5 m in height. It has become very popular in recent years, mostly due to its cold hardiness.
Not only can it resist easily temperatures below-6° C but it is fairly fast growing and drought resistant too. It is a very variable species both in leaves-colour and in shape.
Trunk height tree: 40-70cm
Frost resistance: -6°C
