Licuala spinosa - (Mangrove Fan Palm)


We are excited to offer another exceptionally rare species of fan palm


Native to Southeast Asia, Licuala spinosa is a beautiful, slow-growing, architectural palm, growing to an eventual height of around 8 ft tall


This dense, clumping palm with an arching form, possesses slender stems and divided fan leaves, with the leaf stalks holding tiny spikes


This palm is a unique eye-catcher and a must for any collector of specialist palms


It is hardy to -3°C to -4°C once established — but can also be grown as a conservatory palm, providing it is given enough humidity


Please note: full germination instructions are printed on each pack
