Genus including 16 species of single-trunk palms native to the dry forest of southern California, the United States, Mexico and Guatemala. The brahea armata is a splendid, slow-growing palm with an erect and robust trunk. Under ideal conditions and after many years, it can reach a height of 15 m. The palmate leaves reach a length of 2.5 m and are glaucous-silver in colour, connected to the stem by a thorny petiole. In spring the plant produces beautiful pendulous inflorescences, up to 5 m long, which bear countless small cream-white or yellowish flowers.

Adult specimens can resist low temperatures of up to -8°/-10°c for short periods. Plant widely used in parks and gardens for the beauty of its foliage, the elegance of its shape and its spectacular flowering.
