Chinese Fan Palm (Livistona chinensis)


Chinese Fan Palm

Livistonia chinensis

Plant Chinese Fan Palms into your landscape to bring the tropical look straight into your Southern California yard. This palm features a wide-spreading crown, with drooping, weeping fronds that will stay low to the ground when it’s young. Homeowners may want to line a fence or property line for privacy or plant in the corner of the house as an accent. It’s also a good choice for planting as a stand-alone yard specimen where you can admire its good looks. The Chinese Fan Palm is a welcome addition to any landscape no matter how you use it.

At our huge Palm Paradise nursery, you’ll find the best-quality Chinese Fan Palms available in a variety of sizes, from younger to bigger specimens. Our palms are grown and nurtured for years in full sun and our local Southern California climate, by experienced nursery professionals. We use the best seeds to grow palms, which allows us to ensure that our Chinese Fan Palms are the finest specimens you’ll find anywhere. Visit us, and we’ll be happy to show you around and help you select the perfect palm tree for your landscaping needs.

Chinese Fan Palms have a slow growth rate, so they are very easy to grow. Though they stay low to the ground when young, they can grow to be a large-sized palm that adds a little slice of paradise to your landscape. They require low to moderate water use once established with full sun to partial shade light requirements.

We recommend using Super Palm Juice to optimize your Chinese Fan Palm’s performance. While you’re here, feel free to take advantage of our free design consultation. Let us do all the work! At Palm Paradise, we can do all the hard work for you - from design to delivery to the digging and planting!
