Blackdown Fountain Palm

Livistona fulva

Livistona fulva is native to Queensland, Australia. It grows in humid places in open forests, in gorges by streams and waterfalls. It enjoys a warm mild climate and a sunny location. The fan-shaped leaves with firmly held segments are to some extent reminiscent of Copernica alba. A particularly attractive feature is the striking gold or orange color on the underside of the leaf.
