Ribbon Palm – Livistona decora
This beautiful palm species is native to Queensland Australia where it lives alone forest edges and coastal swamps. It can therefore tolerate wetter areas, but is also very drought tolerant. It will survive frost down to about 20 degrees Fahrenheit.
Beautiful from a young age and height!
These Ribbon Palms were planted from 25 gal containers into the row you see.
We have cared for many newly planted ribbon palms and ensure proper establishment specific to the variety. These need significant water when transplanted in the summer, and even 36 hours without hydration during this critical time can be very detrimental to long term health and vigor.
These have been planted for 6 months and are establishing in the ideal conditions which start these trees off in a healthy state and protecting the time and labor invested.
These are a very tough palm trees once established and they have no significant pest or disease problems. PalmBoss promotes further biodiversity in our landscapes and Livistona decora is a great candidate for further use in residential and commercial settings.
