A Sago Palm is not really a Palm but a member of the Cycad Family and a relative of Conifers and Ginko Trees. Cycads, often called “living fossils,” are one of the oldest most primitive plant families and have not changed very much in the last 200 million years. A Sago Palm has a very rugged trunk 1”-12” in width depending upon the age of the plant. The trunk is topped with stiff narrow arching fronds that grow in a circular pattern. Indoors this plant can reach a height of 6ft. (1.8 m). The Sago Palm, native to the Far East, is a very elegant slow growing plant.
