Slow growing it has a solitary slender, smooth trunk, topped by an open crown of large nearly circular, deeply divided palmate leaves with twisted and curled leaf segments, medium-dark green on both surfaces and heavily veined. Very pretty this striking architectural palm does well on even poor, rocky or sandy soils and makes an excellent indoor palm given a well lit position. Unusual for the UK and great for collectors.
