Comments: This palm has very interesting foliage. The leaflets of the fronds occur at all angles giving the fronds a bottlebrush or foxtail-like quality. Fronds are tall and gracefully arching and make attractive specimen plants in the landscapes that are in frost-free parts of the country although they will tolerate very light freezes for short periods of time. This palm makes an excellent indoor specimen in places that receive natural sunlight during the day.
