Description A much-loved evergreen that develops a stout trunk topped by a whorl of dark green fronds, each containing hundreds of narrow spiky leaflets along its midrib.

Design Ideas Not a true palm, this plant is a living fossil that is technically part conifer and part fern! It is stiff and broad, making a reliable palm-like effect in shaded gardens where space is limited. Ideal in Asian compositions or in a fern grotto. Super in tropical gardens with other foliage plants and hot-colored flowers. Grow as a single specimen and avoid crowding as it destroys its symmetry.
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Canna (Canna); Plumbago (Plumbago); Foxtail Fern (Asparagus); Jacaranda (Jacaranda); Jatropha (Jatropha)
Care Provide porous, loamy, very well-drained soil; avoid heavy, wet soils. Provide some shade in hottest regions. Water deeply, regularly in first few growing seasons to establish root system; take care not to overwater. Feed in early spring. Prune away old faded fronds close to trunk. Remove new plantlets at base of trunk. Not fit for human or animal consumption.
Lore The seeds that develop at maturity and the foliage of the Sago Palm are considered highly toxic to cats and dogs.
