CYCAD - SAGO PALM
Botanical Name: Cycas revoluta
This very symmetrical plant supports a crown of shiny, dark green leaves on a thick shaggy trunk that is typically about 20cm in diameter, sometimes wider. The trunk is very low to subterranean in young plants, but lengthens above ground with age. It can grow into very old specimens with 6 - 7 m of trunk; however, the plant is very slow-growing and requires about 50 - 100 years to achieve this height. Trunks can branch multiple times, thus producing multiple heads of leaves.
