Cycas Revoluta is a very unusual but highly popular ornamental plant. Not technically a palm, the cycad is related to conifer and Ginko trees and comes from the Far East, where it has existed for over 200 million years. It has an upright trunk and stiff feather-like leaves growing in circular patterns. Normally it produces its leaves periodically beginning to grow at the base and sometimes in the crown. This plant is suitable for outdoors and indoors. It will be happy in the sun or bright spot but partial shade is perferable. The hardiness is low at H2 so make sure to shelter during normal British winter months. It is generally disease free but is prone to potential pests. No pruning is required. The final height is between 1 m – 1.5 m (3.2 ft – 4.9 ft) and the final width is between 1 m – 1.5 m (3.2 ft – 4.9 ft)
