Native to New Caledonia and New Hebrides, this is a very fast-growing species, ultimately reaching 16' high, with an upright crown of fronds and an 8" thick trunk covered with shiny grey black scales. It will tolerate frosts down to 27°F, but, like C. atrox, must be kept rather dry to ensure survival of the cold. It would appear to prefer a partially shaded position in hot summer climates.
