This well-known and much loved oriental-looking small palm, valuable
as a house plant due to its legendary tolerance of low light and abuse,
has been popular for a hundred years or more. Slow growing to begin with,
it picks up speed as it ages. Outdoors, plant it in shade for best appearance
and don't let up on the watering. Great hedge plant that will succeed
in nearly all warmer climates. Tolerates a few degrees of frost.
