Queen Sago
Family: Cycadaceae
Origin: Equatorial Africa
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterPalm or palm-likeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Like other cycads the queen sago resembles a palm tree with its featherlike leaves arranged in a rosette that crowns a single trunk. It is a larger and more graceful version of its more commonly encountered cousin, the King sago ( Cycas revoluta). Queen sago is tolerant of soils but prefers loose sandy soils with some organic matter and light bark or leaf mulch. Prefers a warm, sunny position with plenty of water in summer, and a dryish winter. Propagated by seed. Press seeds to half their depth in moist sand. Keep moist and in a warm place, the seed will usually germinate in 8 to 12 weeks.
