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).

    My fan palm
    Looks very pretty. It’s having to perk up some from its long trip. I put her in a sunny window and she’s starting to get her color back and looking better but sometimes it takes a lil while. She had a very long trip from Miami to WV. I’m so excited to have such a great place to get beautiful plants.

  4. Ai G. (verified owner)

    Larger than expected when it fully fans out but super beautiful and changes the feel of the room drastically.

  5. Sharron R. (verified owner)

    I was worried at first thinking it might get damaged during shipment, but it was healthy and beautiful!

Does this plant have sharp spines on stems of leaves?

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!
