Pair of King Sago Palm Trees - Cycad - Cycas revoluta
Product ref: H76405
Cycas revoluta is one of the most primitive living plants, they are very unusual and popular ornamentals. A rugged trunk, topped with whorled feathery leaves has lead to the common name ''King Sago Palm'' - our customers often refer to them as looking like Pineapples! They are of course not edible!! Cycads like this are one of the most primitive living plants, with their unusual appearance, they are also often called ''living fossils'' and they have changed very little in the last 200 million years. While various species of Cycads can be found throughout the world, the subtropical Cycas revoluta which is what we have here is native to the Far East and has been used as a choice container and landscape plant for centuries. The growth habit of Cycas revoluta displays an upright trunk topped with stiff feather-like leaves growing in a circular pattern. Rather than continuously adding foliage, Sagos produce a periodic flush of new leaves. Regardless of age or size, Cycas revoluta is one of the easiest plants to grow, indoors or out, by beginner or expert. This subtropical adapts to a wide range of temperatures from -11 to 42 degrees C, accepts full sun or bright interior light, thrives with attention, and tolerates neglect. In addition, Cycads are extremely long-lived. Supplied as pictured with a chunky base and a mass of healthy green foliage, container grown with overall height of around 50-60cms.
