Palm which grows as a large bush. Evergreen palmate leaves, light green in colour. Produces small, yellow flowers in panicles. It is a shrub-like clumping palm, with several stems growing from a single base. The stems grow slowly and often tightly together, eventually reaching 2–5 m tall with a trunk diameter of 20–25 cm. It is a fan palm with the leaves with a long petiole terminating in a rounded fan of 10-20 leaflets; each leaf is up to 1-1.5 m long, with the leaflets 50–80 cm long. It also has numerous sharp needle-like spines produced on the leaf stems. The flowers are borne in dense, short inflorescences at the top of the stems; it is usually dioecious with male and female flowers on separate plants. The number of flowers per inflorescence is highly variable for both male and female plants, depending on the size of the inflorescence. Unripe fruits are bright green, turning to dull yellow to brown when ripe during the fall (September–November).
