A very familiar palm, this Australian Livistona occrs naturally close to major centres of population and is now widely planted in many countries around the world.
In its native state it grows in forests and swampy situations sometimes as individuals or in small group, often in extensive, dense colonie. Excellent for parks and large gardens — especially in group plantings — as well as for lining driveways and avenues.
Grows very well in temperate regions and responds strongly to regular watering and the use of nitrogenous fertilisers. Frosts are generally tolerated with only a minor setback, even by young plants
