A highly ornamental, midsized palm with a very slender, solitary trunk, 2 to 9 m (7 to 30 ft.) tall and a dense crown
of long, slightly plumose leaves with many narrow, arching leaflets. Native to rainforest and woodlands in northern
Brazil, S. cocoides prefers a tropical or subtropical/warm temperate climate and can even handle an occasional light
freeze. A beautiful, reliable, and very fast and easy growing palm that is suitable even for the small garden. It
is still very rare in cultivation, probably due to the general unavailability of its seeds in the past. Highly recommended!
