The Sago Palm, scientifically known as Cycas revoluta, is not a true palm but a cycad, a group of ancient plants that have existed since the time of dinosaurs. Native to southern Japan, Sago Palms are popular for their palm-like appearance and are widely used in landscaping and as ornamental indoor plants.

In cultivation, Sago Palms typically grow to about 2 to 10 feet tall, although they grow very slowly and can take years to reach their full size. They have a spread of 3 to 8 feet, forming a symmetrical rosette of dark green, glossy, pinnate leaves that are about 3 to 4 feet long.

One of the distinctive features of Cycas revoluta is its rugged trunk, which is thick and shaggy and resembles that of a palm tree. Male Sago Palms produce a cone-like structure, while females produce a round, feather-like mass in which seeds develop.

Sago Palms prefer well-draining soil and can be grown in partial shade to full sun, though they need protection from intense afternoon sun in hotter climates. They are moderately drought-tolerant but require regular watering for optimal growth.

While Sago Palms are highly valued for their ornamental qualities, it's important to note that all parts of the plant are toxic if ingested, posing a risk to pets and children.

In landscaping, Sago Palms are used in a variety of ways, including as specimen plants in gardens, in containers on patios and decks, or as indoor plants in bright, well-lit areas.

Overall, the Sago Palm is a versatile and attractive plant, ideal for adding a tropical touch to both indoor and outdoor settings. Its slow growth, unique appearance, and adaptability to various growing conditions make it a popular choice among gardeners and landscapers.
