This Livistona is a bit different than the 'weepy' Australian palms and comes from many areas of Asia, from China, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Borneo, Vietnam and Malaysia. It is potentially very tall species growing over 120' in nature with a very ornamental heavy weave of fibers over the unsplit, deep green to blackish leaf bases, armed with the largest teeth of all the Livistonas (up to an inch in length). Leaves are bright green, somewhat irregularly split with wide leaflets and only somewhat drooping tips. Despite its tropical origins, it is a pretty cold hardy palm being able to tolerate frosts down to 24F or below when mature. It is, however, a slow growing species, particularly in a Mediterranean climate where any palms over 20' tall are considered fairly old.
