Livistona chinensis

Chinese Fan Palm

Livistona chinensis are unique decorative palms with palmate leaves that terminate in drooping, ribbon-like leaflets. The leaves are light green on top, and have a bluish tint from below. Because of their still petioles and open head these palms have a large, full canopy. These slow growing plants can reach heights of 40' over a period of 20 years. The trunks can be left with thatch or cleaned to show the scarred texture where generations of leaves have separated. These plants thrive in the heat, but do not tolerate wind well. All palms in the genera Livistona require about two months to de-root without shocking the plant.

What makes our plants so special? Our location on the cliffs of Santa Barbara receives over 280 days of sunshine a year and we utilize our indigenous soil, mixing it with a specialized amendment. Our plants are routinely watered, fertilized, and trimmed. We always aid our plants to proper health when needs arise, and we do so without the use of sprays.
