General Description:

This is a elegant and beautiful palm.  It is hard to come by and is widely sought after.  It has dark green or gray/green leaves.  It is more hardy that Parajubaea coccoides, and in most peoples opinion more beautiful.  It has been a great grower for most of Southern California.

Other Notes:

Some trees have set seeds in Southern California.  Germination rates on these seeds have been low, but I suspect in time this palm should become more readily available.
