Description:

True wild clumping form of robelenii. The so called robelenii is a cultivated form of the "reasonerii" which is the result of uncertain hybridization events producing, a single trunked palm which is larger and more robust overall than the wild form. Some may sucker at the crown after forming a trunk of several feet producing a branching multi-headed specimen.
