Cycas revoluta is often referred to as a “living fossil.” This native Japanese plant belongs to the cycad family.
Also called Sago Palms have a very slow growth rate. Young specimens are 0.5m in height, with a spread of 1m, while mature specimens grow to a height of 2m, with a spread of 1.5m.
Sago Palms require some watering once established. Generally, trees need supplemental irrigation to get established, especially if planted after the rainy season.
