This species is native to Brazil and is a single trunk fan palm with a not too large crown of leaves that are green in color. Sometimes they’ll be blue-green. Overall height can get over fifty feet but it’s more common to see them shorter. Old leaf bases can be adherent to the trunk as a petticoat as shown in a photo below. Economically, the leaves of this species produce a wax that makes carnauba wax. The latter is marketed for various usages including car and shoe wax. This palm wants heat and sun and is cold hardy to at least the lower 20’s F. We are offering our 5g plants on sale.
