From China. Medium-size, very cold hardy fan palm. Moderate to fast growth to 30 ft. high, 10 ft. wide. Trunk is usually thicker at top than at bottom and is covered with dense, blackish fiber; as trunk elongates, fiber falls off its lower portion. Toothed, 1½-ft. stalks carry 3-ft.-wide leaves. May look untidy in high winds. May be sold as Chamaerops excelsa. Young plants can be grown indoors in bright indirect light; plant them outdoors when they become too big.
