The most cold hardy of the ARecas, but still marginal in most of southern California. There are some excellent examples growing in s California, though (only does well in zone 10b here, which is only along the southern coast or a few exceptional pockets inland). It is the ONLY species of Areca that can grow in So Cal. However, performs a lot better in the tropics. Is a suckering palm with markedly ringed, green stems that look a bit like bamboo. Has pinnate leaves that are pretty uniformly divided, but not always. Grows in tight clumps usually just a few feet wide (at least in cultivation).
