A solitary, massive, alkaline soil tolerant, slow growing, monoecious palm. Rare in cultivation, common in the wild. It has a smooth, grey trunk, 18.3 m. (60 ft.) tall, 35.6 cm. (14 inch) diameter with spaced ring leaf scars, and massive segmented, pinnate (feather) leaves, 8 m. (26 ft.) long, 1.8 m. (6 ft.) wide, bluish-green above and beneath.

Flowers are sometimes entirely male or female, sometime both sexes together.

Attalea cohune can survive freezing temperatures to about -3.8°C (25°F), but freezing is best avoided. It naturally occurs in wet rainforest or seasonally wet forest in montane locations. In this type of natural environment temperature fluctuations are slight, and this palm prefers a constantly cool or mild climate with little temperature difference between day & night, and Summer & Winter. Under extreme freezing conditions we recommend you keep this palm as dry as possible, and well wrapped up.
