This shrub produces a single trunk with a domed, straight base followed by a crown of many fine leaves. The yellow inflorescence is located far above the leaves.
In isolation, its strange silhouette gives an impression of prehistoric plants. It is a superb ornamental plant.
This variety can be grown in pots or outdoors, tolerates drought very well but fears frosts. Give the maximum light for an apartment culture.
