This recently-found and now officially described palm is surely one of the most exciting new discoveries for temperate area palm enthusiasts.
It has large, robust, nearly circular, fan-shaped leaves like a Livistona. It sheds them naturally, leaving a smooth, slender trunk. It grows fast and easily and withstands snow and heavy frosts, coming, as it does, from high altitudes up to 2400m 8000ft, but it is equally suitable for sub-tropical climates.
This palm seems much happier with some shade/protection in dry, Mediterranean climates. It is a moderately slow growing species, and responds well to heavy watering, and fertilization, and does not appreciate drought conditions.
Germinate in vitro in gelatin, agar or other medium. Pre-soak seeds for 3 days in warm water and sow in containers. Germination takes 1 to 4 months.
