 Ceratozamia mexicana
Family: Zamiaceae / Cycadaceae
Palmilla, Forest Pineapple
Origin: Mexico, Guatemala
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageThorny or spiny

A medium to large cycad which in nature develops an emergent trunk to 2 m long and 30 cm diameter, with the leaf bases spreading away from the trunk. Dark green smooth leaves. Suited to tropical and warm subtropical regions. A vigorous species which forms impressive clumps. Require protection from excessive hot sun, with a position receiving morning sun or filtered sun being most suitable. Respond vigorously to an abundance of water, regular light applications of fertiliser and mulching.

Cycas angulata, Ngathu, Angular Cycas

Click to see full-size image Cycas angulata
Family: Cycadaceae
Ngathu, Angular Cycas
Origin: North Australia
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterPalm or palm-likeThorny or spiny

A large cycad with a massive blackish trunk to 12 m tall and 40 cm diameter, swollen at the base, with occasional offsets produced on the trunk and sparse suckers arising from the base, growing in clumps of up to 6 stems. Blue green to grey green glossy leaves. The stout caudices, topped with thick arching fronds make them a very attractive species, and probably this is the cycad most mentioned as a food source by Northern Territory aborigines. Rainfall in its habitat is during summer, so this species does better if kept on the dry side during cold weather.

The name derives from the Latin angulatus, which translates as "angular", referring to the leaflet arrangement on the leaf petiole.

Mature seeds
 Cycas armstrongii
Family: Cycadaceae
Fire Fern
Origin: Australia
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterOrnamental foliageDeciduous

Annual grass fires are common in its natural habitats. The species is extremely fire tolerant, and the usually early spring fires initiate a profusion of new leaf growth in the plants, thus the common name, Fire Fern. Fertile plants are frequently seen with reproductive structure only, and no leaves. The leaves are deciduous in the dry season, though persistent if grown in moister situations.

Family: Cycadaceae
Cycas
Origin: North Australia
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunRegular waterModerate waterPalm or palm-likeThorny or spiny

This slender-trunked form of Cycas is also characterised by pronounced silver or bluish-grey colouration through young upright leaves, which can most frequently be seen in the new flush of growth after a fire. Great fields of these grow amongst the rocks of limestone outcrops and show the first return to colour in areas annually burned off by aboriginals.

Cycas circinalis, Cycas undulata, Cycas wallichii, Queen Sago

Click to see full-size image
Female flower
 Cycas circinalis, Cycas undulata, Cycas wallichii
Family: Cycadaceae
Queen Sago
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.

Click to see full-size image Cycas maconochiei
Family: Cycadaceae
Cycas
Origin: North Australia
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunModerate waterSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Its slender, straight trunks are often blackened by fire in habitat, and hold a neat crown of fairly short, flat, green to gray-green leaves. It makes a beautiful ornamental for tropical and some warm temperate areas but is rather rare in cultivation.

Distinguishing features: distinguished by the flattened leaves with short petioles and leaflets with recurved margins, and the basal leaflets reducing in size.

Cycas Marlborough Blue
Origin: Australia
Large shrub 5-10 ftSemi-shadeModerate waterOrnamental foliage

Nice looking cycad with silvery-blue leaves in a hot, dryish climate. In really humid climates tends to be a bit greener. The leaflets are very fine and soft for a cycad.

Cycas revoluta, Sago Palm, King Sago

Click to see full-size image Cycas revoluta
Family: Cycadaceae
Sago Palm, King Sago
Origin: Japan, South China
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliagePalm or palm-likeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

This is one of the most primitive living seed plants, are very unusual and popular ornamentals. A rugged trunk, topped with whorled feathery leaves has lead to the common name "Sago Palm", however it is actually related to conifer and Ginko trees - all cone bearing plants which trace their origins back to the ancient flora of the early Mesozoic era. Often called "living fossils", Cycads have changed very little in the last 200 million years. The growth habit of Cycas revoluta displays an upright trunk with a diameter from 1" to 12" depending on age, topped with stiff feather-like leaves growing in a circular pattern. Rather than continuously adding foliage, Sagos produce a periodic "flush" of new leaves, called a "break". Eventually, offsets begin to grow at the base of the specimen, and occasionally in the crown. The addition of offsets provides a source of new plants and many possibilities for developing an unique specimen. Regardless of age or size, Cycas revoluta is one of the easiest plants to grow, indoors or out.
