Altitude in the mountains of Morocco and is a small evergreen palm, very bushy which in nature rarely exceeds 2 m in height. Small stem covered with fibrous material and brown tending towards reddish in colour. The large, robust leaves open like a fan and are supported by long, spiny petioles that cluster at the top of the plant. The flowers are grouped in a very short and branched dark yellow panicle inflorescence. The fruits are small dates gathered in clusters, first yellow then orange when ripe.
