The Millstream Palm is a medium sized solitary fan palm growing to about ten metres in height. The fronds are grey green in colour on stalks about a metre long. After the leaves die, the stalks remain on the upper part of the trunk. The flowers are cream or yellow coloured and are produced in spring and summer from September to January. The fruit are round and about3 cm to 4 cm in diameter, turning dark brown when they ripen. It is not a common palm in cultivation, and is a slow growing species.
