Chinese fan palms (Livistona chinensis) are popular landscape plants in warm, humid climates, and they can make good houseplants as well. These trees also go by the common name of fountain palm due to the way their fronds arch up and then spill downward like water from a fountain. Each frond can reach around 6 feet long. Chinese fan palms are best planted in the spring. These slow-growing palms have more of a bushy appearance when they are young. But in roughly a decade their single, slender, grayish-brown trunk will have extended enough to make them distinctly a tree. They can live for around 40 years.
