This stylish palm is great for just about any landscaping project. Often used as the main focus of residential landscapes, the Chinese Fan is a popular choice of palm tree for most Southwest Florida homes.  Also known as the Livistona chinensis, the Chinese Fan Palm can be grown indoors at the beginning stages of its life. Once transferred outdoors, the Chinese Fan can grow upwards of 25 feet or more if planted into the ground. This palm has become a popular variety in the Southwest Florida area, including Cape Coral, Naples, Fort Myers, Pine Island, and Bonita Springs, and does very well in our climate.

 

Worried about our infrequent cold snaps? Don’t be! The Chinese Fan palm can withstand freezing temperatures for a short period of time, which is not very common with palm trees. In our typical climate, however, Chinese Fans thrive when it gets plenty of sunshine. They prefer full sun. These palms can do well in outdoor pots but will grow faster and larger when transferred into the ground. It is recommended that fertilizer be used 

 

When the Livistona chinensis begins to reach maturity, one of its main features, the widespread canopy, really begins to take shape. With thin, elongated fronds coming from the tips of the canopy, the Chinese Fan becomes one of the more unique palms in the Southwest Florida area.

 

The Chinese Fan palm is sold as either a single trunk or a multi trunk. If you’re looking to use the Chinese Fan as a source of privacy, it is recommended that you look at multi trunk trees. They are typically sold as a set of 3 trunks. The single trunk, however, is good for landscaping projects where you want the palm as a standalone accent.

 

In addition to the natural beauty of the Chinese Fan, many people enjoy giving their palm a diamond cut throughout the trunk of the tree. The diamond cut is a unique look that gives the Chinese Fan an elegant look. We are able to do this for a low cost upon installation.
