A great dry climate palm with moderate water needs. A fast grower.

Fast grower is indeed a relative term. Compared to really fast growers, such as Queen, King and Mexican fan palms, this plant is a super slug... but it is indeed a great species for California and should be grown far more often.

In the bay area- its a faster grower then Howea. For an exotic palm,its fast. Ceroxylon here take a decade to make a ring of trunk..some sp. 20+ years. Its also fast to make a number of fronds before it trunks. So,in that way it makes an impression fast.
The P.cocoides at the Oakland palmetum in 30 years are near 30 '.
I really have a huge gopher problem or I might have been more of a palm collector. Palms are lettuce to gophers!
