Best used in large scale or commercial projects as it is usually too tall for smaller gardens
This is one of the tallest members of the palm family which can reach 100 feet. When mature, the palmate leaves droop to form a skirt of thatch around the trunk just below the fronds. This can be removed on a yearly basis. Very fast growing. Needs little water when mature.
It requires well-drained soil; the type that works best is a combination of loam and sand.
