Lots of palms fit your criteria. Here are a few to consider: Dwarf Palmetto (Sabal minor), Fan-Shaped, grows 3-6 feet. European Fan Palm (Chamaerops humilis) fan-Shaped, grows 2-5 feet. Needle Palm (Rhapidophyllum hystrix), fan-Shaped, grows 3-5 feet. Allagoptera arenaria (Seashore palm), feather shaped, grows to 6 ft. Chamaedorea elegans (Parlor palm), feather shaped, grows to 3 feet. Chamaedorea metallica (Miniature fishtail palm) feather shaped, grows to 3 feet.

Enjoy your new palm!
