We love this plant for its easy care nature and unusual almost alien-like appearance providing interesting structure and shape. Cycas revoluta is one of the easiest plants to grow, indoors or out, by beginner or expert. Its origins can be traced back to the ancient flora of the early Mesozoic era. Often called "living fossils", it's changed very little in the last 200 million years.
While it looks like a palm, It's actually not a palm at all but a cycad. However, its palm-like, feathery foliage, and cones, make it very similar to a palm or tree fern. Native to the southern regions of the United States.
