Common Name: Australian Fan Palm
Height: Up to 30’
Water: Keep moist
Comments: The Australian Fan Palm likes a rainforest situation. A shady position and plenty of moisture is all what is needed to grow Licuala ramsayi successfully. This is one of the most cold tolerant of the Licualas, (apart from L. spinosa), but is still a tropical/sub-tropical plant, and not frost hardy. As a youngster it prefers quite heavy shade, but it is an emergent plant so adults are fairly sun-hardy. It is a very slow grower.
