The palm reaches 9-10 meters in height and 10-25 cm in diameter, it has a noticeably slower growth than the T. fortuneii. More resistant to cold winds.

It is the palm that goes further north, withstanding temperatures of - 20 ° C, with cases recorded even of - 25 ° C, in perfectly acclimatized plants.
