    Genus of 28 species of single-stemmed palms that grow along waterways and in swamps, forests and ravines in the warmest areas of Asia and Australasia. Livistona chinensis is a beautiful, moderately growing palm, with a thin trunk (20-30 cm in diameter), which can reach a height of 7-8 m. The lush foliage reaches a width of 3 m and is made up of palmate-reniform leaves up to 2.5 m long and light green in colour. The petiole is equipped with brown thorny protuberances. The fruits are small dates gathered in large clusters, very decorative, which when ripe are bluish green in color.
