The species was native to numerous states of eastern Mexico but is now confined to the state of Veracruz. It is an evergreen perennial growing up to 15 feet with a noticeable expanded caudex, for storing water. The single palm-like stem produces terminal tufts of strap-shaped, recurved leathery leaves, sometimes hair lock-shaped in the ends
