Yes, it's a very ornamental palm; however, ultra-tropical. This palms cannot grow everywhere in San it's extremely sensitive to the slightest chill.

Wouldn't last very long here then?

Yes, it would have to be grown in a warm to hot greenhouse. It needs a tremendous amount of heat to grow well.

Even though it a beautiful palm; it would be a lot of work there.
