The Cycas Revoluta is the most popular of all the Cycads. Often refered to as the Sago Palm it is one of the most primitive and unusual ornamentals.
Very easy to grow it thrives with attention yet tolerates neglect. It is a very symerical plant, with deep semi-glossy feathery leaves growing in a circular pattern.
New leaves emerge in a "flush" all at once and are very tender until they begin to harden a few weeks later. A new set usually appear during spring or summer but not necessarily every year.
Very slow growing and extremely long lived it can reach heights of 4m
Needs winter protecting from hard frosts
Likes full sun - part shade
