Apart from other tropical Licuala, L.dasyantha has a relatively good cold hardiness based on the growing experiments reported. Say in 2002, the 1 year old seedling and adult palms did not get any damage after 2 continuous raining days as low as -2C(28.4F) in Guilin City, Guangxi Province ,China where the lowest temperature goes down to -5C.
Plus, it has interesting mottled leaves with yellow dots or rings.
