Plants from this species ...

... are of excellent ornamental value
In Kakamega in Kenya they need very little care and grow fast.
A real jewel in the horticultural crown, this palm is easy to grow, easy to propagate, fairly quick growing, and not fussy at all. It is a fairly beautiful item on its own, especially when in flower, but what it lacks in beauty it makes up for in versatility. It can be placed with ease anywhere in the garden, and will tolerate mild shade to full sunlight. Its quick growth means that it can be counted on as a piece in a landscaping design, and can be utilised where a palm tree is needed urgently (3 to 7 years in East Africa). I grow them in Kenya at an altitude of over 1500m a.s.l., with a rainfall of about 2000mm per annum, and they are my most dependable and trustworthy palms.
