Palm-like habit with many narrow arching leaves of greyish bronze striped with pink. Sometimes reverts slightly to green, particularly at the leaf bases. Rather tender.

Reasonably fertile, well drained soil in sun or part shade and a warm location. Needs protection from cold winter weather.

Architectural focal point, exotic appearance. Smaller specimens are good in containers and make excellent patio plants for the summer.
