Ribbon Palm (Livistona decipiens)


The Ribbon Palm, botanical name Livistona decipiens, is a moderate growing, medium to large palm tree with striking good looks and a cold hardy nature. In fact, it’s one of the toughest palms around! From northeastern Australia, Ribbon Palms are noted for their stunning, fan-shaped fronds that split into long, delicate ribbons. These elegantly drooping leaf tips help to give it its uniquely attractive look for a variety of landscape applications.

Slender and graceful, Ribbon Palms are just as tough and durable as they are attractive. It will require low to moderate water use and is drought tolerant once established. An asset to any landscape, this palm tree thrives in full sun, though it does well with partial shade exposure too.

It’s a showy fan palm. Homeowners will love its versatility as it looks fantastic in a wide variety of landscape applications. Feel free to plant one alone and make it a focal point in your tropical or sub-tropical landscape or plant them in a group for a look that is sure to mesmerize.

A tall and slender specimen is a great choice to adorn poolside areas, where glassy water can reflect its graceful form. During the holiday season, spruce up the trunk with festive LED lighting! Ribbon Palms provide year round interest, day or night. Create nighttime drama with landscape lighting. Light from behind or below or use direct floodlights to silhouette it against light colored walls. We provide free design consultation at our nurseries!
