Sago palm

Cycas_ spp.

Sago palm is not a true palm, but rather belongs to an ancient group of plants called cycads. Its stiff leaves resemble those of palm or the fronds of a fern. It's easy to grow, thriving indoors or out. It grows well in the landscape or indoors in a container. Because the leaves are so stiff and can be sharp, it's best to keep this plant away from walkways or other areas where you may run into it.





8 to 20 feet
