This attractive small palm is noted for its multiple, slim, ringed grey trunks which are topped with soft green, feathery, flat, broad leaves with tips that appear jagged and torn. It is almost identical to the commonly planted solitaire palm (Ptychosperma elegans) except for its clumping habit, and the fact that the stems are more slender.
Although able to reach 30' in height, Macarthur palm is most often seen in the 15-25' range, with a variable spread dependent on how many stems are allowed to persist in the clump.
Macarthur palm does equally well in full sun or partial shade; plants grown in shade tend to have larger leaves that are a richer, dark green color. It is a trouble-free, low maintenance plant that is widely adaptable to any soil that is not permanently wet. Because of its relatively small size and dainty proportions, this palm works very well for residential gardens of all shapes and sizes.
