The hurricane palm is solitarily stemmed, with a ringed trunk. Gently arching green fronds arise from a slightly swollen crown shaft. The hurricane palm is an excellent choice to plant near roadsides, sidewalks, and the ocean. And the roots are unobtrusive.
It requires full sun and is tolerant of drought, salt spray, and wind. With a medium growth rate, it will eventually reach 35 feet tall. It is nearly extinct in its native land of the Mascarene archipelago but common in cultivation.
Germination by seed takes place in 2 months.
