This plant is much hardier than suggested.

They grow here in the UK at Kew botanical Gardens where they would have experienced maybe -6c on rare(er) occasions, but they also grow in the north and Scotland where they may have experienced - 15c or less!

They are a huge tree in spread and height and have the most fantastic great long leaves that are like ribbons reaching up to 16 inches in length. The branches hang down under the weight giving a weeping habit that move gently in the breeze. It is pleasant to be under them on hot days and a light aroma is produced.

They are tropical looking and astounding!

They are best in open places where they can be appreciated and allowed to grow unchecked. They are also very messy litterwise.
