THough I have to say this looks a bit like an ordinary Queen palm, but also a bit like a coconut palm (though with a perfectly straight pole of a trunk which is not very coconut like). Tall, smooth trunked palm with smallish head (relative to size of palm) of arching plumose leaves (leaves a bit less plumose than a Queen Palm).

This is one of the least cold tolerant of the Sygrus. I have had several of these die of frost and have since given up trying to grow this one in zone 9b... pretty marginal even in 10a in southern California, but in the rare zone 10b in So Cal, seems to do rather well. One grower has one in So Cal that is about 50' tall and perfect (zone 10a bordering on 10b, though).

Regional...

This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Tarzana, California
Vista, California
