Livistona chinensis, the Chinese fan palm or fountain palm, is a species of subtropical palm tree in eastern Asia. It is native to Southern Japan, Taiwan, the Ryukyu Islands, and the Guangdong region of southern China. It is also reportedly naturalized in South Africa, Mauritius, Réunion, the Andaman Islands, Java, New Caledonia, Micronesia, Hawaii, Florida, Bermuda, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.
Livistona chinensis can attain heights of about 30 to 50 feet (9.1 to 15.2 m) and a spread of 12 feet (3.7 m). The leaves are fan shaped.
The palm is cultivated as ornamental trees in gardens and conservatories.
This plant can become a weed, or in some ecosystems an invasive species - such as in Florida wetlands and on some Caribbean Islands.
