Welcome to our lovely sago and cycas palm collection. This genus of trees is a shorter that most palms and are perfect for those installations where a tropical floor plant is in high demand. Believe it or not, both species are native to southern Japan, and considering its geography, it isn’t surprising it has a bit of a different look that other species. Today, they are both pervasive across all of Southeast Asia and are coveted for their spongy center known as Sago. It is very similar to cassava or tapioca starch and used in cooking across the entire globe.
Sago or Cycas?
From a design ascetic, Cycas are full of exotic beauty, like the rest of their cousins, just shorter. And because of their more compact form, they actually make a more practical house or office plant for people with limited space. Just imagine having the hint of an eastern jungle displayed in a dark corner, or on a staircase landing. It is the perfect complement to a bonsai sitting on the table above.
Sago Palms, unlike their cousins, do have a more traditional trunks and grow in height up to 6 feet tall. Our trunk styles do an excellent job emulating the grey hues found in nature too. Most people are drawn to these plants by the way the fronds stay buoyant and shaped and don’t droop. If you love the style, then you just have to ask yourself, do I want something that looks like a tropical floor plant, or a more traditional looking tree with a little bit of height.
