A genus of palms comprising several species all bearing handsome fan-shaped leaves.

Livistonia australis is hardy as far north as San Francisco. Livistonia Chinensis, not being so hardy, should not be planted out of doors north of Santa Barbara unless well-sheltered and partially shaded.

Propagate by seeds sown in heat one inch deep, in early Spring. When the seedlings are about four inches high, plant them in light rich soil in three-inch pots. Transplant them into larger pots as the young plants require the space.

Phoenix Canarlensis.
