Chinese Fan Palm seed clusters

This time of year, many of our palms are still holding the seeds and dropping them one by one.  Palms are slow to germinate so many times the seeds have percolated deep into the soil before they sprout making them hard to remove.  Our native sabal palm is particularly difficult to remove.

One of the most commonly used palms is the Chinese Fan Palm (Livistonia Chinensis).  They are commonly used as a screen since they are thick and slow growing and because of the ornamental, highly glossy, palmate leaves.

When they produce seeds, they too are quite ornamental.  Take a look at this cluster in the picture below.
