Notwithstanding the common name of sago palm or King Sago palm, this cycad is botanically closer to conifers than to palms. This species in native to Kyushu (third largest Japanese island), the Ryukyu Islands and southern China. It is a very slow-growing, symmetrical plant that produces a crown of shiny, arching, palm-like, evergreen palmate leaves atop a shaggy upright trunk. Trunks take a long time to form (1" diameter trunks may take years to eventually reach 12" diameter). Young plants typically grow to 2-3' tall over several years, but may take 50 or more years to eventually reach 10' tall.
