Sago Palm

Sago Palm

This week we’re taking it back to the Jurassic era to introduce you to the stunning Sago Palm.

Native to warm parts of Japan and southern China these slow-growing houseplants are adored for their feather-like foliage that grows in a symmetrical ring. Great for new plant parents, this easy-to-care-for tropical makes for an interesting addition to any room!

While its name may imply that it is a palm, this plant is actually considered a cycad, one of the oldest groups of plants dating back to prehistoric times — hence the plant’s hardiness.
