Chinese Fan Palm Chinese Fan Palms make slow-growing, but striking landscape specimens. The Chinese Fan Palm is tolerant of poor soils, but does the best when regularly fertilized. In zone 8 it will likely die back to the ground due to the freezes and frosts, but will re-emerge in the spring. It may be possible to grow this plant in zone 7 as well, with a good mulch. It can grow in nearly full shade, but will stretch if grown under these conditions.
