Can be used as an avenue tree or planted in groups of staggered heights. This tree is a desirable alternative to other tall, cold hardy, palmate palms due to its insect and disease resistance.
Leaflets on the fronds are very thin and ribbon-like giving this palm a unique, almost weeping appearance. Old petioles eventually fall exposing attractive rings remaining from the old petiole bases.
