This weekend I planted a new addition to my shade area. My new addition is a Ruffled Fan Palm (Licuala grandis) or otherwise known as a Vanuatu Fan Palm or a Palas Palm. The Ruffled Fan Palm gets this name from the fronds appearance looking like a ruffled potato chip. This Palm Tree grows best in the shade and grows to heights of 6' to 12' tall and should be spaced 4' to 8' apart. The Vanuatu Fan Palm grows really well in USDA zones 10a, 10b, and 11. As you can see from my pictures this little guy is about 2' tall right now.This will be an exciting Palm Tree to watch grow. Here are my pictures of my new Ruffled Fan Palm Tree (Licuala grandis).

I hope you enjoyed the pics. See you again next time!!
