Saribus rotundifolius is a round-leaf fountain palm found in Southeast Asia. It is a member of the genus Saribus. It is also called Footstool palm (English) and as Anáhaw or Luyong (Filipino). The foliage of the Saribus rotundifolius is the unofficial national leaf of the Philippines.
It is a common landscaping plant in the region. It can grow in sub-tropical climates and humid, tropical areas.
The leaves are used for thatching and food wrapping. Overharvesting of leaves of wild plants have reduced leaf size. The leaves do grow faster after harvest but tend to be smaller.
In September 2011, after DNA research the reclassification from the genus Livistona to the resurrected genus Saribus was official.
