This plant is easily recognized by the bronze/copper underside of its fronds. It grows moderately fast here in Florida, and its only downside may be its lack of availability. It may take the cake for the cold hardiest Livistona, with unoffical reports of it living through temperatures near 0F.

This is one of my favorite Livistonas- has less divided and stiffer palm leaves than most other species, and the newest leaves have an ornamental rust to coppery color on the underside of the leaves. As a seedling it is especially attractive having a relatively sparse head of slight drooping leaves, stiff, nearly circular leaves and a thin trunk (max diameter a foot). From an area of northern Australia called Blackdown Tableland. Moderately fast grower with some good cold tolerance, but certainly not nearly the most cold tolerant Livistona, at least in Southern California. Temps down to 25F for 7-8 hours defoliated and killed the spike on this palm, so seriously doubt it could tolerate anything down below 20F, not to mention 0F.
