Sago Palm - Male

Sago Palms add elegance and sophistication to your lawn and landscape.    They can be a centerpiece for your front lawn, and/or they can be used to add character and distinction throughout your landscape.     These plants are the oldest living plants on earth.   They were present on earth during pre-historic times.    Today,  they grow in USDA Hardiness zones Zone 8-10 and are cold tolerant down to 15 F.     They are grown as far north as South Carolina and as far south as Key West.   The Sago Palm you will receive will be 12 inches tall and over 1 yr old.

Sago Palms are actually Cycads and are not true palms.   They are more closely related to Pine Trees than to Palm Trees.     Sagos come in Male and Female plants.   The plant you are buying is the Male Plant.   These plants will form "pups" at their base which can be removed and then planted as a new Sago Palm.    If you have a female Sago Palm, the Male will fertilize the Female and Sago Palm seeds will be formed in the female plant.   Female plants are somewhat rare and are occasionally available at our nursery.  Visit us at hccnursery.com
