This plant is a recent discovery, with origin central Mexico. It looks a lot like B. nitida, but the leaf stalks are completely thornless. The color looks the most like Brahea armata, but even more bright silvery. Because of these features, this Brahea has great potential to become a popular Brahea specie.
It can withstand drought as well as to severe freezes and should be adaptable to a wide range of temperate climates. Due to its reasonable mature size it could find room in any garden.
