Distribution & Habitat:

A rare palm from Southern Brazil, growing in a small area of Goias and Minas Gerais, in open grasslands.


A small Butia sometimes with a trunk reaching a maximum of 1m in height. Leaves are glaucous, and extremely recurved and arching.


This palm is new to cultivation, so its hardiness is unknown, but is likely to show considerable cold resistance like the others of its genus.
