Characteristics and Uses:
This Sago Cycad (Cycas revoluta) is really a Fern that has hints of a palm tree.
It is ideal in gardens where the winters are mild. It is slow growing with a short trunk and plenty of large leaves.
The Sago Cycad can be planted in the ground either alone or with other tropical plants in mild areas.
For the more northerly regions it is best planted in a pot and brought inside during the autumn into a light and airy room, to create a houseplant.
