Gaussia princeps, commonly known as the 'Sierra Palm', typically reaches a height of 10 to 15 m. It initially sprouts a pale, significantly swollen, barrel-shaped trunk, gradually tapering as it matures. The crown bears 3 to 6 plumose leaves arranged almost symmetrically. It thrives when bathed in sunlight within a tropical climate, but also proves resilient in warm temperate regions that seldom encounter more than an occasional, gentle freeze. Well-draining soil is essential, with a preference for limestone. This palm effortlessly endures drought and tolerates exposure. Despite its alluring ornamental characteristics, it remains an exceptionally rare sight in cultivation. (Pot size: 3 gallon)
