Japanese sago palm or common Cycad has been used as a staple landscaping plant on the South coast and Sydney due to its suitability to a cool Temperate climate.
Great for adding some dark green fern looking texture to any garden. Look incredible on mass or as a standalone feature. Very slow growing and low maintenace which suits a lot of us!
Best to plant Cycads in a medium size due to slow growth rate, advanced sized plants range from $300-$2000 which is not too bad considering the cost of other similar sized feature plants!
Avail in 250mm 1ft tall $49.50
300mm (larger butt) $88
