Cycas revoluta, the Japanese sago palm is native from South Japan where it grows on cliffs along the shores. Cycas revoluta is a small seamless palm that grows as high as up to 6 meters, both as single or multiple trunks completed with a regular and flat crown of dark green palms. The sago palm is a very adaptative species even to drought and frost and can be found all over the world from tropical to warm temperate climates. It’s also a nice indoor plant.
