A stouter version of an ancient classic 'Little Tut' rises to only 4', a much more manageable size for water pots and small ponds. The thick stems are topped with fine green filaments through out the season. No plant has more grace and presence. Full sun to light shade partially submerged in water- the best results are when the pot is less than three inches below the surface of the water.

If the species is sometimes described as 'tiny palm trees', this cultivar is a teeny-weeny palm tree, a true dwarf, to only 2-3 ft tall. Best perhaps as a container plant where it can be moved into a garage during the worst of winter. Full to part sun, lots of water. Top hardy to 20F, USDA zone 9, though sprouts from the roots in zone 8.
