Why plant Chinese Fan Palm?
Feelin' a bit suffocated from the sweltering heat? Then just grab a branch from the Chinese Fan Palm and you'll know what to do! The Fan Palm gets its name from its paper fan-like, light green leaves. These leaves have a wide spreading crown that will droop, causing a weeping layered look that adds a unique character to your landscape! Like a fountain, the leaves will arch up then spill out into a downward direction. These fun palms have a wild and tropical personality that will make their presence known in any landscape type or even indoors in colder climates as a houseplant!
Chinese Fan Palms are native to Eastern Asia and was introduced to Bermuda, Hawaii, Florida, and soon - your backyard!
How to use Chinese Fan Palm in the landscape?
Use these Chinese Fan Palms to decorate your home entry way—like your walking into your very own tropical forest! In warmer climates, line your driveway with these stunning tropical accents. In a garden setting, surround them with other colorful tropical plants to add variety to your landscape or place them along shorter, unattractive walls to them hidden. Smaller plants can be used as a barricade as their spiked leaves will keep out unwanted critters or even people! Chinese Fan Palms are also a commonly potted indoor plant! Bring your Fans indoors for more tropical beauty or place them in an exotic pot and add it to your patio.
Hardiness Zone: 9-11
How To Plant Chinese Fan Palm
Plant your Chinese Fan Palm in warm and humid southern climates. These Fan Palms are not too picky about their growing conditions, but they do prefer a well draining, fertile soil with a position in full sun!
How To Water
Keep your Chinese Fan Palm in a soil that remains lightly moist but not soggy, as they don't love to sit in water for too long. As it matures, it does have mild drought tolerance, but you should still water during dry spells and very hot weather. When it comes to palms that are planted in containers—let soil dry out during the winter months as they aren't actively growing.
How To Fertilize
The Chinese Fan Palm is a heavy feeder and benefits from a fertilizer application two to three times a year. We recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food once a year for best results.
How To Prune
When pruning your Chinese Fan Palm, you can remove the dead fronds that have turned completely brown at the base of the trunk. Other than that minor clean up, these plants do not require much maintenance!

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
