It is a moderate to slow-growing evergreen shrub with a single unbranched trunk. The leaves radiate from the center of the plant's apex in all directions-(spherical). The flowering stem grows 15ft (5m) above the foliage. The color of the flower determinate the gender of the plant, being mostly white colored for males and purple-pink for females plants.
