These are majestic plants. The fronds can easily reach ten feet and more. Originally I planned this one to be the centerpiece of the jacuzzi around which we sit. This was impractical and so it is now to the side of the jacuzzi where the fronds offer shade and great archetecture. They are tender plants and frost will singe its leaves which later dies. This is not so much a desaster as about 20 new leaves are produced in the next spring if the crown is protected.
