The Chinese Fan Palm, or Livistona Chinesis, is a wonderful addition to your outdoor landscaping. Native to southern Japan, Taiwan, and areas of the South China Sea (hence the name), it’s perfect for warmer climates, and thrives in just about any type of soil. It does have flowers, but these are often hidden within the crown. The tree usually grows from 15 to 25 ft.  Its dwarf version (often used inside shopping malls) makes a lovely choice for your inside spaces.

If you’re considering planting a Chinese Fan Palm in an outdoor spot that gets lots of bright sun, we recommend you choose a more mature plant. Younger plants do better with partial shade.  If you’re hoping for faster growth, make sure to give it lots of moisture, (though it will survive in drought-like conditions).

    Really beautiful and nice size. Its only been a few days out of the box so still giving it time to adjust

  16. Melissa T. (verified owner)

    I bought one of Daryl’s Finds that was over 6′-7′ tall. It was shipped to me in October all the way to Minnesota and the palm looked fantastic. The only reason I’m giving 4 instead of 5 is that the palm was a little too tall for the box they used but again the palm is probably 7 feet tall.

Does this plant have sharp spines on stems of leaves?

2 years 22 days ago

Hi Julia, Yes young Chinese Fan Palm does have short spines on the interior of the leaf stems. As they mature they do lose majority if not all their spines. Thanks!
