This very distinctive and attractive Syagrus has leaf bases arranged in five spiral rows, and petioles with long, flat, spinelike projections. Its mature height is 3-12 m (10-40 ft.), the trunk is about 30 cm (1 ft.) in diameter, and the stiff leaflets are whitish beneath and are held erect, giving a very handsome appearance. It is one of the most common palms in its homeland of Brazil, one population having been estimated at half a million individuals, but is still rather uncommon in cultivation. Subtropical or dry tropical climates suit it best.
All seeds float tested, palms possibly capable of surving -6c.
