Fountain palm

The Chinese fan palm, or fountain palm (Livistona Chinensis ), is a hardy, slow-growing tree that derives its nickname from the fountain-like way its leaves droop down from the crown. Though native only to China and Japan, they’ve since become common across the world because of their adaptability and toughness; in fact, in parts of Florida, they’re considered an invasive species. This is among the tougher species of palm – unlike most, it can tolerate cold and drought, making it a good outdoor palm for those who don’t live in the tropical heat most require. At its peak, the Chinese fan palm can reach thirty to forty feet tall, but in cultivation, it is kept much smaller and many gardeners grow them inside as potted houseplants. Their leaves grow in circular, segmented fans, and develop spines when they’re young that they lose as they mature. These wide and attractive leaves can range from a deep green to a more bluish green, and they produce small yellow flowers and black fruits when they bloom in the growing season. This is a good palm for beginners because of its hardiness.
