Livistona chinensis (Chinese Fan Palm) - This palm has a weeping appearance because the tips of the leaflets droop down. The crown is very dense with glossy fan leaves that are split many times. The leaf petioles are edged with spiny teeth. It slowly grows to 30 feet tall. Full sun or shade, moderate watering. If grown in full sun this palm will need extra water, otherwise the leaves may turn yellow.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Livistona chinensis.
