Beautiful palm tree for very mild areas or conservatories. Dense crown of very long, slender pinnate leaves arching outwards and downwards. Panicles of brown-yellow flowers later followed by golden-brown date-like fruits.

Will take a certain amount of frost if planted in full sun and well drained soil. Needs winter protection while young.
