Licuala ramsayi (Australian Fan Palm)
An Australian native palm from northern parts of QLD which has spectacular near circular leaves up to 2m in diameter. Best suited to growing in areas where there is some shade. It can be grown in subtropical regions provided the area is frost free.
The QLD Fan Palm likes a rainforest situation. A shady position and plenty of moisture is all that is needed to grow Licuala ramsayi successfully. This is one of the most cold tolerant of the Licuala's, but it's still a tropical/sub-tropical plant, and definitely not frost hardy. As a youngster it prefers quite heavy shade, but its an emergent plant so adults are sun-hardy. It is a particularly slow grower, so be patient....its worth the wait. Due to its slow growth habit, it makes excellent pot plants on verandahs and patios.
This palm is endemic to NEQ from about Cooktown, south to about Ingham. The main areas where Licuala ramsayi naturally occurs is near Mission Beach (Licuala Rainforest), Tully, Daintree River and Cape Tribulation.
