Very ornamental solitary, pinnate crownshafted palm from the mountains of South American jungles. It has droopy, somewhat elongated-fishtail-like leaflets and a slate blue-grey crownshaft above a nice orangy-brown, ringed trunk... very ornamental! Grows in south Florida well, but no idea about California.. .suspect it's too tropical for us here.
