A very handsome plant that originates from Madagascar, with the benefits of being both highly ornamental and self-cleaning - the fronds fall off themselves. It has a beautiful crown of leaves and is fast growing. An excellent specimen plant that should be grown in the open to show off its beautiful shape. Also makes a good container plant for large courtyards and patios when young. Will tolerate cool conditions, prefers full sun to part shade. A wind tolerant species. Keep moist, but not wet. Palms will benefit from a couple of applications of recommended fertiliser during the growing season to encourage strong, lush growth.
