It is a perennial growing to 15 feet and more in the tropics. It will add a unique look both indoors or outdoor. The swollen, smooth, grey trunk of this palm species is bulbous at the bottom, resembling a bottle when young. As the tree matures, the width of the trunk evens out, appearing slightly conical in the oldest individuals and reaching 2 feet in diameter. Emerging from the top of the trunk are between four and eight long bright green leaves. Each leaf arches upwards and curves down splendidly. The leaves are feather-like with leaflets splaying out from each side of a central midrib. Numerous cream flowers grow on stalks at the crown of the tree, and following the flowering, small, round fruits appear, changing from green to black as they age. Hardiness zones 10-11, (1°C/35°F, 4°C/40°F) in Winter. It prefers well-drained sandy soil, partial sun to full sun, and be careful not to overwater. It can take drought and coastal conditions without a problem.
