Native to Papua New Guinea and Northern Australia, Livistona benthamii is a moderately tall, fast growing fan palm, well suited to cultivation in warm, sub/tropical areas.
With a fondness for coastal exposure, Livstona benthamii can do well in waterlogged soils or landscapes that contain areas of brackish water. Reaching heights up to 60 feet, the deeply cut, glossy, dark green palmate leaves are a stunning contrast to the tightly ringed trunk and unique petiole stubs that give it a gorgeous tropical look.
A striking and unusual landscape palm that can easily be grown in more temperate areas as a container specimen. Fantastic on a patio or just outside a front entrance. Screams tropical.
