Madagascar Sago – Cycas thouarsii

This unique plant resembles a palm tree but is actually a cycad. This very symmetrical plant supports a crown of green feathery leaves. The thouarsii is the fastest growing cycad. As the plant matures it may produce offshoots. This is a wonderful plant for indoor and outdoor use. Great used as accents or shrubs. Use in entryways, rock and sand gardens or planted in front of tall trees and palms. Can tolerate low temperatures to 27 degrees. Grows best in partial shade.
