A good choice for a variety of applications. Can be used for avenue planting or in groups with staggered heights. This newly introduced species can be used as a more attractive alternative to Sabals, Chinese Fan Palms and Washingtonias. Livistona Nitida is not known to have the pest and disease problems commonly found with many other palm species.
