It will grow in part shade so it makes a good understory plant for tropical style gardens although in itself it is not a tropical plant. Foliage is green with an attractive fan shape.

This deep tap root has advantages in that it helps the plant through hot dry summers. A mature specimen id reasonably drought resistant.
