(Australian Cabbage Palm, Australian Fan Palm)

A tall palm with bold fan-shaped leaves and a straight solitary trunk, this native of coastal eastern Australia is also noteworthy for its cold-hardiness.

The large, glossy green, evergreen fronds are divided into up to 70 long, dangling, lance-shaped segments, that radiate like the spokes of an umbrella. Thirty-five to sixty fronds are borne atop the trunk on long ascending, horizontal, or drooping stalks ("petioles"), forming a dense, spherical crown. The petioles are edged with short tooth-like...

(Chinese Fan Palm, Chinese Fountain Palm, Fountain Palm)

The Chinese fan palm is a slow-growing, fairly cold-hardy subtropical palm revered for its large fan-shaped fronds with pendent tips. It is native to the southern islands of Japan and nearby Taiwan where it grows in open forests. It is an adaptable palm that grows well in arid or seaside locations as well as more amendable ones.

Its light grayish green, evergreen fronds are glossy, rounded and large. Each is held on a long petiole armed with large teeth (younger plants have the most teeth)....

(Fountain Palm, Ribbon Palm)

Prized for its immense, finely cut leaves with dangling, ribbon-like leaflets, this medium-sized, single-trunked palm from coastal Queensland is also noteworthy for its cold-hardiness.

The huge, deep green to blue-green, evergreen fronds are divided into 70 to 80 long, lance-shaped segments, that radiate like the spokes of an umbrella. The leaflets are themselves divided into long segments that weep toward their tips, creating a cascading effect. Thirty-five to sixty fronds are borne atop...

(Burdekin Palm, Woolly Fan Palm)

Prized for its airy canopy of colorful, fan-shaped leaves, this medium-sized, single-trunked palm is a rare endemic of northeastern Queensland, Australia.

The large, blue-green, evergreen fronds are divided into 80 to 90 long, lance-shaped segments, that radiate like the spokes of an umbrella. The leaflets are themselves lacily divided toward the tip. The fronds have waxy, silvery undersides. About 40 fronds are borne atop the trunk on exceptionally long stalks ("petioles"), forming an open,...

(Central Australian Cabbage Palm, Central Australian Fan Palm)

Stately and picturesque, this medium to large, single-trunked fan-palm is native to arid canyonlands in central and northern Australia.

The large, gray-green, evergreen fronds are divided into numerous long, lance-shaped segments, that radiate like the spokes of an umbrella. The leaflets are themselves divided into long segments that weep toward their tips, creating a cascading effect. Young plants often have stiff, red-tinted leaflets. About 40 fronds are borne atop the trunk on long stalks...

(Mataranka Fan Palm)

Stately and picturesque, this medium to large, single-trunked fan-palm is native to a small area of northwestern Australia. Some botanists consider it a subspecies of Livistona mariae.

The gray-green, evergreen fronds are divided into numerous long, rigid or semi-pendulous, lance-shaped segments, that radiate like the spokes of an umbrella. The leaflets are themselves divided toward the tip. Young plants often have stiff, red-tinted leaflets. About 40 fronds are borne atop the trunk...

(Footstool Palm, Roundleaf Fountain Palm)

Noted for its bold rounded evergreen leaves, this medium-sized, single-trunked fan-palm is native to Southeast Asia and New Guinea.

The large, emerald-green, circular fronds are edged with numerous rigid to arching, pointed lobes. Young plants have relatively shallow-lobed leaves; older plants have more deeply divided leaves with long lance-shaped segments that radiate like the spokes of an umbrella. More than 30 fronds are borne atop the trunk on long stalks ("petioles"), forming an open, spherical...

(Serdang, Taraw Palm)

A tall palm with bold fan-shaped leaves and a straight solitary trunk, this Southeast Asian native is both highly ornamental and remarkably frost-hardy.

The large, rich green, evergreen fronds are cleft into numerous arching, lance-shaped segments, that radiate like the spokes of an umbrella. More than 30 fronds are borne atop the trunk on long stalks ("petioles"), forming an open, domed crown. The petioles are edged with long vicious fang-like prickles. A "skirt" of hanging older leaves sometimes...

(Cycad, Moore's Macrozamia)

This is one of the world's most stunning and grandiose cycads, as it mimics the silhouette and beauty of a small Canary Island date palm. Moore's macrozamia cycad is native to the forest edges and slopes in tropical Queensland, Australia and northern New South Wales. This slow-growing cycad, which reproduces by cones, is neither a palm nor a fern. Cycads are ancient plants that existed with the dinosaurs eons ago. Eventually, Moore's macrozamia cycad develops a tall trunk-like stem with mop head...

(Canary Island Date Palm)

A large evergreen plant with dark green, arching leaves atop a massive trunk, Canary Island date palm is architecturally stunning. The trunk is decorated with ridges and old frond boots, often making the crownshaft resemble a large pineapple. Its fronds are pinnate (like a feather) and can have a slight blue-green or silvery tinge. Lowest leaflets on the front are stiff, vicious spines. Early summer-occurring flowers are pale yellow and produce semi-dry, yellow-red fruit. It is a native of the Canary...
