1. The leaf of L. rotundifolia has uncut portion more than half, whereas in L. chinensis the cuts proceed below middle
2. The upper leaf surface more delicate and flatter in L. rotundifolia, deeper grooves in L. chinensis;

Chinese Fan Palm is a very popular palm grown in parks and gardens.
It is able to reach 50 feet in height but usually seen at 30 feet with a 10 to 12-foot spread,
Chinese Fan Palm has a single straight trunk and large, six-foot-long leaves which have drooping tips. The divided leaves have long, tapering, ribbon-like segments which gracefully sway beneath the leaves, creating an overall fountain-like effect. The long leaf-stalks may be armed with sharp spines.
The inconspicuous flowers are hidden among the leaves and are followed by small, blue-black, olive-like fruits.
Young specimens of this fan palm are as attractive as the mature plants.
The Chinese fan palm is native to southern Japan, Taiwan and several islands in the South China Sea.

Nice Shots … Pls also add a shot of Complete plant if possible


It was not possible to take a full shot, as its in somebody’s house.
I am waiting for the fruit to come now. That will atleast complete the set.

i think it is a borassus sps or palm


I also think some species of Borassus. Complete photo of the plant can help


I think Borassus leaves dont have spines on the petiole. I may be wrong though.
This should be Livistonia chinensis.

Could be Bismarckia nobilis; but need to see the leaf stem (petiole).


Thank you all. Attaching another pic may be it helps for correct Id


commonly horticulturist call it table fan palm.


I think this is Livistonia chinensis, as … suggested.


This is not Livistonia chinensis. Leaves have a very long tapering end (downy)


…, That is not a character for identification of Livistonia. The ends of leaves can bend down in scarcity of water I assume.
This cant be Bismarckia as the color of leaf is different.
Washingtonia is another option but it is not so popular in Indian gardens.


I suppose Livistonia chinensis


Can this be Licuala grandis Ruffled fan palm Philippin Garden 


I do not think it is Licula grandis either.


Livistona chinensis or L. rotundifolia as per another thread:

These are common in a village, apparently ornamental, but seems to be spreading wildly. Livistona chinensis (Jacq.) R.Br. ex Mart.?


Two more photographs may help identification. Attachments (2)


Reniform leaves (conspicuous in young stage), deeply 2-partite pendulous long acuminate segments; branched inflorescence of 3-orders and olive like drupe are all indication of Livistona chinensis (Jacq.) R.Br. ex Mart.

Livistona chinensis (Jacq.) R.Br. ex Mart.
There are mature trees and young. It is interesting to note that leaves of mature tree do not bear spine on petiole. Leaves of young tree do have spine near the base.

ID can be assured since there was a nameplate! This is the only palm I could find a nameplate. So, my next posts will be ‘unknown’. It is possible that I may have recorded the same species at different locations.


Detailed capture … Thanks for sharing..

The third image looks like a Livistona; the first two could be Ravenea, but I suggest you check with … at Kew


No 1 and No3 are Livistona chinensis. No2 is Ravenea rivularis.

This palm is commonly planted here in Pantnagar, Uttarakhand. Not aware of the scientific name. Please ID!


Could be Livistona chinensis, common name Chinese Fan Palm.

I had posted earlier.


Seems to be


To me it is Livistona saribus (Lour.) Merr. ex A.Chev.


Thank you … for suggesting ID.

In light of eFI page on L.chinensis, I am taking it as L.chinensis only.

L. saribus has stem covered with old remains of leaf bases (thus not smooth) and petioles has long spines.

This may not be Licuala grandis because the cleft at the tip of leaves are deeper in this picture whereas, the same in Licuala grandis is very shallow.
We shall wait for others comments.


This is Livistonia chinensis I assume.


I too think that this is Livistonia chinensis.


The apex of leaf segment is not drooping hence it would be Livistona rotundifolia. Anyway young palms can be misleading for ID.


I have studied the two plants on the net and found the following relevant info
Considering these points does it favor more to be Livistonia chinensis
Attaching new pictures showing Petiole and its attachment to the leaf blade which was not clear in previous pictures
Please validate

 Livistonia chinensis Livistona rotundifolia  Plant posted by me
 Petiole Petioles longer than the leaf blades, stout, round spines on the petiole; Petiole is not longer than leaf blade, spines do not appear round
 Leaf The leaves of this palm are fairly large and marked costapalmate (palmate but with a ‘costa’ or midrib down the middle at which point the palm has a deep ‘V’) with elegant drooping leaflets about the distal ¼ of the leaf. leaf blades round, not deeply incised, the tips not drooping or scarcely drooping The leaves of this palm are fairly large and marked with a midrib down the middle at which point the palm has a deep ‘V’)

Reference

Plant book


Licuala is out of contention, because it has leaves, almost undivided blade with toothed outer margin

There is a close race between Livistona chinensis and L. rotundifolia, but I will go with L. chinensis for two reasons
1. The leaf of L. rotundifolia has uncut portion more than half, whereas in L. chinensis the cuts proceed below middle
2. The upper leaf surface more delicate and flatter in L. rotundifolia, deeper grooves in L. chinensis

The plant is too young to show pendulous tips, generally seen in older plants. But who knows, some other species may spring up. Frankly I don’t have much experience with palms, but know Licuala and Livistona clear differences.

How about Chinese Fan Palm (Livistona chinensis)?


I agree with … i.e. Livistona chinensis (Jacq.) R. Br. ex Mart.
