This palm is a solitary, feather-leafed crownshaft palm with deep green leaves. Overall height tends to reach 60 ft. with a 10-12 ft. spread. This palm's unique root system is called "tillering," meaning that the root curves upward and above soil before diving back down, ultimately resembling the shape of a saxophone bell. The top third of this exposed root should remain above the soil throughout its life! In habitat, Kentiopsis oliviformis is endangered due to agricultural land spread, and so should be treated with care as a landscape addition!
