Sago Palm Cycas

The sago palm is not a palm, but a primitive relative of coniferous plants. It bears huge, fernlike leaves from two to six feet long, eventually forming a thick trunk composed of rusty colored scales. The leaflets are hard and shiny and look impervious to damage, but are in fact easily bruised. A whole circle of new leaves appears at one time.
