This distinctive and attractive plant prefers full sun in a dry, very well drained situation. It is very frost resistant , and established good sized plants have been known to survive -10C, or even to recover from lower temperatures when damaged.
The plant originates from the rocky canyons of North-Western Mexico and California. It grows slowly but steadily but can eventually attain heights of 12m (36 feet) and once established is one of the most beautiful and sought after palms in the world!
It reacts very badly to being dug from the ground so it is important to buy pot grown specimens where possible.
