Cycas angulata

Ngathu, Angular Cycas
Family: Cycadaceae
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.

Cycas calcicola

Cycas
Family: Cycadaceae
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.
