A bushy palm tree developing several trunks from the base. Its fan-shaped leaves are rigid and have long, thin petioles loaded with glaucous lateral spines, its most distinctive feature. It is easy to grow and tolerant of a wide range of climates and conditions, easily resisting prolonged drought, as well as easily withstanding salinity and offshore winds. Given its hardness and rusticity, its growth is assumed to be slow.
