UNDERSTORY GREEN AND DIFFERENT WIDE LEAF CYCAD

This is a variety of Ceratozamia that comes from an area called "corriente".  I had wide leaflets that come to a pungent point.  Leaves are green and, by report, it is never a huge plant.  It is native to Mexico.  Years ago we had some larger plants and they were quite beautiful.  We only have a few left.

CERATOZAMIA HILDAE
UNDERSTORY DWARF CYCAD
GROUPING OF LEAFLETS


This is a dwarf green cycad that is native to Mexico.  It is known for grouping of the leaflets.  By this I mean several leaflets on the stem together with a gap before the next group of leaflets.  The individual leaflets are wide.  Plant caudexes never get too large - an 8 to 10 inch would be the biggest you'll see.  They can sucker.  Leaves are green and overall height is rarely over six feet.  They prefer filtered light.  Cold hardy is estimated to be to the low 20's F.  We're putting plants with about various sizes caudexes on sale as shown below.  Some are near coning size.  We do have both smaller and larger sizes available.

CERATOZAMIA KUESTERIANA X CERATOZAMIA PLUMOSA
UNUSUAL HYBRID OF TWO THIN LEAF CERATOZAMIA
DWARF SIZE, SOME SUN, VERY LONG TIN LEAFLETS


This is a hybrid Ceratozamia by utilizing pollen from C. plumosa on a C. kuesteriana female cone.  Both are sun tolerant  dwarf species of Ceratozamia.  These plants should end up being under six feet tall and tolerant of near full sun along the coast and a few hours of sun inland.  Cold tolerance should be in the low 20's F.  This is an unusual cycad hybrid.

CERATOZAMIA LATIFOLIA "LIKE" CYCAD WITH GREEN WIDE LEAFLETS
LARGE SPECIMEN CYCAD WITH MULTIPLE CAUDEXES
WIDE LEAFLETS - BEST FOR FILTERED LIGHT


This cycad is quite similar to Ceratozamia latifolia but doesn't quite key out exactly.  For this reason we're calling it a "like" cycad.  It has long slightly reflexed leaves with wide green leaflets.  It has green leaves and a main caudex and three good sized offsets.  It is a known female and has cones in the past.  The primary caudex is almost 8 inches in size and the pups are 3.5, 4.5 and 4.5 inches.  It's an understory cycads with excellent cold tolerance into the low 20's F.

CERATOZAMIA LATIFOLIA "LIKE" CYCAD WITH GREEN WIDE LEAFLETS


CERATOZAMIA MOLANGO
LARGE FILTERED LIGHT CYCAD
SIMILAR TO OR THE SAME AS CZ FUSCOVIRIDIS

This large Mexican cycad is known for long dependent leaves that tend to be horizontal with time and may even reflex downwards.  Initially they throw in an upward direction.  Leaflets are stiff and green.  The crown is usually wider than it is tall.  Cold tolerance is into the teens.  BTW, some taxonomists feel this species is synonymous with Ceratozamia fuscoviridis.  The specific named "malango" is seldom heard today but this is what we grew it as.  We are offering two sizes for sale on this species.  This is a difficult species to locate nowadays.

CYCAS DEBAOENSIS
SUPER RARE RATHER NEWLY INTRODUCED CYCAD FROM CHINA

MULTIPINNATE LEAVES, SMALL CAUDEX, LONG LEAVES

In my opinion, this is one of the most desirable cycad species introduced in the past several decades.  It was formally described in 1996.  Native to China, it is a plant with a rather small caudex, typically under a foot in size, but with long leaves that stretch upwards and will divide to the third order.  Some argue that it's just "bi-pinnate", but if you research pictures of the leaves, there is a small stem leading to two or three leaflets.  Therefore, I consider it to be "tri-pinnate".  In other words, the main stem will fork and that branch will fork again, this last stem holding the leaflets..  The Caryota palm divides to the second order and is considered to be multipinate as well.  With this branching, this species produces a very tropical and exotic appearing leaf.  It typically will hold two to four leaves, but has been reported to hold as many as ten leaves.  Length of these can reach ten feet.  They tend to go straight upwards, flexing down over time.  Cycas debaoensis prefers filtered light and is cold hardy to the lower 20's F.

CYCAS GUIZHOUENSIS
ARE SMALL TO MEDIUM SIZED CHINESE CYCAD 
GREEN UPRIGHT LEAVES


This small to medium sized exotic cycad is from southwestern China.  Only in the past 20 years has this species been available in the U.S.  It has green upright leaves and can develop a trunk about three feet tall.  Leaves are green and leaflets narrow and shiny.  Sometimes you’ll see the leaflets twisted on their axis.  It comes from elevations of 1000 to 1500 feet or more and has potential to have reasonable cold hardiness, at least into the mid and possibly low 20’s F.  The crown width is about eight feet across with leaf lengths of three to five feet.  At the nursery it seems to grow quite well.

CYCAS NEOCALEDONICA

AKA CYCAS SEEMANNII
ATTRACTIVE CYCAD WITH NO LEAF SPINES OR PRICKLES

Being a friend of the island of New Caledonia, I am going to show you the only cycad native to their country.  It is Cycas neocaledonica.  They are quite proud of it.  But, taxonomists have in more recent years declassified it as a species and now call it Cycas seemannii.  Most remarkable is the fact that this cycad essentially has nothing sharp or pointed to poke you.  The leaf stems are without prickles or spines.  Leaves are green and shiny. Crowns can hold as many as fifty leaves with lengths up to 7 feet.  Trunks are 8 to 12 inches thick at maturity and overall height of centuries old plants can be over 40 feet.  Most grow this species is part day sun or strong filtered light although it takes full sun right on the coast.  Cold tolerance is about 22 to 24 degrees F.  The plant on sale is about 14 years old.

 On sale here is a very rare hybrid of the genus Cycas.  Both parents are native to China.  The C. panzhiuaensis is known for it's medium size, blue-green foliage in sun and cold tolerance.  Cycas debaoensis is known for it's mutlipinnate leaves and fluffy leaf appearance.  I've not had this cross before and there are no pictures of mature plants available.  It should make a small to medium sized adult plant and take at least part day with a cold hardiness into the low 20's F.  For a 1.5 gallon container, the plants on sale are huge for their pots.

CYCAS REVOLUTA X CYCAS DEBAOENSIS
THE "REV-DEB" CYCAD - BEST OF BOTH SPEICES

This very interesting hybrid would combine the rapid growth and sturdiness of the Sago Palm with the exotic branching leaves of the C. debaoensis.  You can already see the bifid leaflets below.  We anticipate a small to medium sized green cycad that perhaps can take sun along the coast.  It'll be strikingly different than the Sago Palm.  Also, it should have hybrid vigor and perform well.  This cross is a recent hybridization and rare to find.  We can ship these easily.  I anticipate they'll have a cold hardiness into the upper teens F.  I'm offering two sizes:  1 gallon with caudex size 2.5 inches.  And, citrus pot size with caudex size 3.5 inches.

DIOON ANGUSTIFOLIA
SUN AND COLD TOLERANT THIN LEAF CYCAD
NEVER OVERLY LARGE


This cycad species is from Mexico and is known for its very thin leaflets.  You will see this cycad as a single trunk plant or as a cluster with multiple stems.  The overall crown size is not large, typically with a spread of four feet.  A plant with a caudex of 12 to 18 inches is a very old plant.  Cold tolerance is Definitely into the low 20's F.  It likes full, hot sun.  This would be a good sun species of cycads for those who live in a colder climate.  It is closely related to Dioon edule.   This species is also ideal where an enthusiast needs a plant that will not get tall and needs to fit into a smaller area.

DIOON CALIFANOI
MEXICAN CYCAD WITH STIFF KEELED LEAVES
FULL SUN SPECIES – VERY ATTRACTIVE

This attractive Mexican cycad is found in the areas of Oaxaca and Pueblo.  It is a medium sized plant with stems up to about ten feet.  The leaves are not particularly long, typically about four feet.  The most notable thing about this species are the strongly keeled leaves with thin leaflets.  By "keeled" I mean that the leaf, in cross section, looks like the keel of a boat. The color is green or gray-green.  The leaflets are tightly spaced.  It is a full sun plant and cold tolerant easily into the low 20's F.  It is a rare species to find at nurseries.  This plant can be mail ordered.  We do have similar plants this species.   This plant is in a 7 gallon pot and has a 4 inch caudex.

DIOON CAPUTOI
SUN TOLERANT, COLD HARDY CYCAD WITH VERY THIN LEAFLETS
SUPER RARE AND HARDLY EVER AVAILABLE

This is one of the more rare types of Dioons.  For decades, no nursery could offer them for sale.  But, about thirty years ago seeds were finally available and a few nurseries were able to grow them.  The reason for the shortage was that locals in the habitat of the Puebla region in Mexico strictly prohibited viewing the plants or collecting seeds. There it's in a high elevation habitat in full sun.  The hallmark of the species is the presence of widely spaced and rather thin leaflets.  Leaf length is about four, perhaps five feet.  Hundreds of years old trunks can get up to ten feet tall.  This is a full sun species for most areas with a cold hardiness of about 20 degrees F.

DIOON MEROLAE
DROP DEAD GORGEOUS CYCAD FROM CHIAPAS, MEXICO
NARROW TRUNKS, GRAY-GREEN LEAFLETS, BEAUTIFUL FORM
FULL SUN NEAR THE COAST – FAIRLY COLD TOLERANT
 

This has always been one of our nursery favorites.  It's a slow growing species from Chiapas, Mexico.  Trunks can, over centuries, get up to ten feet tall.  Trunk thickness is about a foot on average.  They can branch overhead and pup from the base.  Leaf color is green or a definite gray-green.  A plant with a 3 foot trunk can easily be a hundred years old.  Leaves are gently keeled and leaflets are spiney and reflected backwards toward the ground.  Thus, in cross section the leaf looks like the wings of a bird.  Leaves are often stacked as you see with the citrus pot plant below.  The span of leaves on a healthy plant is five to eight feet.  Along the coast this species takes full sun.  In far inland areas, I'd give morning sun.  Cold hardiness is down to about 20 to 22 degrees F.  It's not as cold hardy as Dioon edule but, I think, a lot prettier. We can offer a nice variety of sizes for sale.

DIOON PURPUSII
EXTREMELY RARE CYCAD FROM MEXICO
KEELED LEAVES WITH SPINY LEAFLETS

This is a very nice species from Oaxaca, Mexico.  It is known as the fish bone cycad because of how its leaves look (spaced leaflets which have a similar took to a fish’s skeleton).  This beautiful cycad has green leaflets which have a fine silvery/white tomentum.  It is hardy to sun, though it can tolerate a partial sun exposure.  This species is slow growing, but can get to heights several meters tall.  This would not be typical in cultivation though.  D. purpusii is quite rare in cultivation and is a real treat to see in person.  It is hardy down to the mid 20’sAvailability of this species is always very limited.

RARE AND SOUGHT AFTER MEXICAN CYCAD WITH GREEN TO VERY BLUE GREEN LEAVES
TOLERATES FULL SUN AND COLD HARDY PERHAPS INTO THE UPPER TEENS F.


This sought after variety of Dioon edule comes from the Queretaro state in Mexico.  There it lives in harsh conditions at elevations up to 5000 feet.  It is a medium sized plant.  Extremely old specimens may have a trunk with a 3 to 4 foot height.  The striking appeal of this variety are the sometimes blue leaves.  In sun this is more pronounced.  I've seen specimens as blue as an Encephalartos horridus.  Leaves are keeled and sometimes will twist.  This plant can sucker.  It tolerates full sun and is cold hardy down to about 20 degrees F.  It's a great plant for the garden.  BTW, greenhouse grown plants are usually green because they don't see sun directly.

This surprisingly cold hardy Mexican cycad is known for its longer leaves.  Compared to an ordinary Dioon edule, it has much longer leaves.  These leaves have a somewhat yellow petiole and leaf color is green or blue-green.   And, there's an extra treat: new leaves flush an interesting pink-green color.  This is a slow growing species.  Trunks rarely get to two feet.  They cluster freely. It is a sun species that is cold tolerant into the upper teens F.  It tolerates heat and full hot sun.

DIOON SONORENSE
SUPER RARE BLUE OR GREEN CYCAD FROM SONORA, MEXICO
LOVES HEAT AND SUN 

This cycad species comes from Sinaloa, Sonora, Mexico and has two forms.  One of these is blue in color.  They come from a very hot and dry, almost desert-like environment.  And, they are found at high elevations.  So, they are a pretty tough species.  A very old plant might have two to three feet of trunk.  Leaves are flat in cross section and leaflets are long and narrow.  Leaf color could be green or a silver-blue.  I've seen specimens almost as blue as a blue Encephalartos.  They tolerate sun along the coast and are probably cold hardy into the upper teens F. This is a very rare species to find.  Of note, historically this plant was grouped with a related species Dioon tomasellii.

ENCEPHALARTOS ALTENSTEINII
LARGE SOUTH AFRICAN CYCAD WITH GREEN LEAVES
TOLERATES COASTAL SUN – FAST GROWER
 

Compared to the Encephalartos aemulans above, this is a faster growing and bigger species.  Leaves are six to eight feet long.  The trunk is very stout, over 24 inches if well grown.  Mature plant height can approach twenty feet in many decades.  Leaf color is green.  Leaflets are shiny.  A hallmark of this species is the lack of prickles at the base of the leaf stem.  In other words, one could grab the leaf there and not get stuck by prickles.  Along the coast, this species easily tolerates full sun and is cold hardy to about 20 to 22 degrees F.  The last photo shows a larger plant from the nursery with over three feet of trunk.

ENCEPHALARTOS BUBALINUS
EXTREMELY RARE CENTRAL AFRICAN GREEN CYCAD
UPRIGHT LEAVES WITH TOMENTUM ON LEAF STEMS - CUPPED LEAFLETS

This species is endemic to northern Tanzanian and southern Kenya, where there are two isolated populations.  This is a medium sized plant.  Leaves can reach a length of about two meters.  Stems are fairly short only reaching a height of one to two meters on very old plants.  The name 'bubalinus' comes from the Latin word meaning "buff", which is in reference to the color of the tomentum on its stem and petioles.   It’s been described as a beautiful and tropical looking plant, which has green to grey/green leaves.  It has cupped leaflets, which tend to be slightly plumose or out of plane one larger specimens.  Its leaflets are moderately armed as are its petioles.  They are not terribly sharp though.  Depending on exposure, this species can sprawl out or hold upright crowns of leaves.   It will tolerate partial or perhaps full sun along the coast and a few hours of sun far inland.  Cold tolerance is estimated at 25 degrees.  This is a super rare species to find for sale.

SALE ON THIS RARE ACTUAL PLANT
 

This species is endemic to the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal provinces of South Africa.  Plants grow in sunny, hot grasslands where the steep terrain is composed of rocky soil and outcroppings.  This species is small to medium sized.  Leaves are approximately one meter long.  Stems are stout and can get up to a height of  four meters over a few centuries.  This is a beautiful, fine leafed and blue cycad.  The leaves are unarmed, and are not pokey.  This plant (as well as the other fine leafed Encephalartos) tend to be very cold hardy as well tolerant of heat.  This plant prefers to be in the full sun, but can tolerate part day (3-5 hours) sun in coastal and inland areas.  For desert climates partial sun or filtered light would be ideal.  This cycad also needs a soil that drains well.

This Central African cycad is native to Mozambique and Malawi.  It is a medium to large cycad with a thick trunk that can get to eight feet tall.  Leaves are upright and a nice green color.  With age, old leaves may hang downwards.  Leaf length is six to seven feet, perhaps a bit longer in shade.  Leaflets are wide and somewhat armed.  Interestingly, the cones are a brown-red in color.  This is a fast growing plant that takes sun or part day sun along the coast.  In the desert it needs filtered light.  Cold hardiness is somewhere between 22 and 24 degrees although such temperatures would probably just burn the foliage.  Compared to plants native to more southern locations, it's not quite as cold hardy as them.  But, for most of Southern California it's a cinch to grow.

VERY FAST GROWING – GIVE IT SOME ROOM TO GROW
 

This Central African cycad is of medium size and native to Kenya, Tanzania and possibly Mozambique.  In habitat, it grows at anywhere from sea level to 2000 feet elevation.  When I think of this species I remember two things:  New leaves emerge vertically in a V-shaped crown.  And, that the leaflets have multiple thin points on the end, sort of resembling a pitch fork.  New emergent leafs are generally green but can sometime have a copper color.  Leaves are green and about six to eight feet long.  The trunk is stout and up to eight feet height.  Leaves are a glossy green color.  Growth is vigorous and it's been said that it can cone in less than a decade.  Trunks can get up to almost twenty feet and in my experience are about 18+ inches thick when well grown.  Even along the coast, part day sun is probably best to avoid limy color to the leaves.  Cold tolerance is 23 to 25 degrees F.

ENCEPHALARTOS LANATUS
SILVER BLUE SOUTH AFRICAN CYCAD
THIN LEAFLETS - SMALL TO MEDIUM SIZE MATURE
THIS ACTUAL PLANT FOR SALE


This species comes from the Gauteng and Mpumalanga regions of South Africa.  It is a small to medium sized species.  Encephalartos lanatus have short leaves that scarcely exceed a meter.  Their stems can reach about a meter and half in a few centuries.  Plants are almost always solitary, but they can occasionally produce basal suckers (very rare and very few).  The name 'lanatus' is derived from the Latin word meaning "wooly".  The petioles, newly emerging leaves and cones are all 'wooly'.  The leaves on this species emerge a pale green with a thick wool-like tomentum (plant hair).  They are a pale green when they first emerge.  As the leaves age, they transition to a powdery silver/white color.  The leaflets and petioles on this species are unarmed and are mildly pokey.  The leaflets are thin.  This species has to have soil that drains very well.  It also need to be in sun for coastal and inland areas.  If you plant it in the shade, it will slowly die.  For desert areas, sun is a possibility but you can grow them in partial sun to filtered light.  The second photo was ten in South Africa but an unknown a author who emailed it to me.  The burnt trunks are from a fire.

This species is native to the Eastern Cape region in South Africa.  There it is essentially extinct in the wild.  Extremely old specimens have eight to ten feet of thick trunk.  On these habitat plants you'll see rings of old brown leaves hanging down.  Fresh leaves are a glossy green and three to five feet long.  They curl back completely.  Leaves and leaflets are stiff, hard and green in color.  Leaflets are prominently lobed.  If one looks at the cross section of the leaf, it is prominently keeled, even more so toward the distal leaf.  Leaflets are wide, have many lobes.  They overlap like stacked dominos.    Once you've seen one up close, you'll remember the look.  The closest species to this cycad is Encephalartos arenariusE. latifrons wants full sun on the coast and is cold hardy to the lower 20's F.  Plants are unbelievably expensive as there are seldom any for sale.  It's a coveted and sought out species for collectors.  Only rarely do we have any for sale.  We have these younger plants in 5 gallon so you don't risk their condition if you do the repotting.  We only have several available.

This species is endemic to the Kasongo-Linda districts of eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.  The climate is quite hot and humid.  This is one of the largest cycads on the planet, and has longer leaves than any other species of known cycad.  Leaves can grow in excess of seven meters and their fat stems can grow a staggering height of over fifteen meters (over hundreds of years).  Before this plant ever makes a foot of trunk, leaves will streak into the air, dwarfing much around them.  Old specimens can easily be mistaken for palms as they are so large and tropical looking!  In all areas, this species requites filtered light or shade.  In the tropics or exceptionally humid areas, you can get away with growing this species in sun.  It is not very frost tolerant (truly a tropical species of Encephalartos).  The plants on special are in citrus pots and have a caudex size of 2.5 inches.

This medium sized, green leaf cycad comes from the Lebombo Mountains in the Republic of South Africa.  It has several habitat locations.  In more recent times, the species of E. senticosus was split from this complex.  E. lebomboensis has a trunk that is fairly narrow for its trunk height of ten to twelve feet. I call this a "medium" size because leaves are typically only four to six feet long with widths of about two feet.  Leaflets are a glossy green, not very long or wide and mildly armed.  In the average garden, don't expect more than four to six feet in your lifetime.  This is a full sun species and cold hardy to the low 20's F.

BEAUTIFUL BLUE OR GREEN SOUTH AFRICAN CYCAD
MEDIUM SIZED MATURE - TOLERATES COASTAL FULL SUN

Discovered in the late 1770's, this was one of the first fully described species of Encephalartos.  It's native to the Eastern Cape region of South Africa.  In a century or two, trunks can reach up over fifteen feet and divide overhead.  Suckers are produced at the base.  Leaves are strongly curved downwards in a very attractive manner.  Leaf length is three to six feet.  Leaf color is variable.  They can be anywhere from a dark olive green to a brilliant blue.  Leaves are keeled and leaflets overlap and stack.  In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful cycads in the world.  Yes, it can get tall, but long after an average person's life span.  It likes coastal sun and partial sun in the desert.  Cold hardiness is down to the very low 20's F.

ENCEPHALARTOS MANIKENSIS
CENTRAL AFRICAN CYCAD
MEDIUM SIZED MATURE, GREEN LEAVES

This Central African cycad is medium sized with green leaves and a trunk height of one to two meters.  Native to Zimbabwe and Mozambique, there is variation is the appearance of the leaves and leaflets, leading to the thinking that there are actually many species in native habitat areas.  Taxonomists have concluded that all these different species or varieties are part of what is known as the "Manikensis Alliance".  As a group, all are green, fast growing and never get huge.

BLUE FORM ON SPECIAL - CITRUS POT SIZE

 This species is native to Mount Zembe in western Mozambique.  There are also populations described in Zimbabwe.  This is a medium sized plant.  Leaves tend to be about two meters (or slightly longer) in length.  Stems are often stout and get about one meter in height.  This species (named after Raymond Munch - a prolific student and collector of this alliance) is within the "manikensis alliance" (a large alliance of closely related species which consists of 5+ species within Mozambique and Zimbabwe).  An interesting characteristic of this plant is that it is the only one of this alliance that can be blue!  Its color is quite variable in the plants can range from an olive green to a stunning blue color.  This species is armed, bearing spines one the leaflets and petioles.  E. munchii is a fast growing species, and can push up to twice in one season if the culture is ideal. In coastal and inland areas, this species is well adapted to full or partial sun areas.  In desert areas, this species would do better in partial sun or filtered light.

DURABLE AND FAST GROWING SPECIES

This versatile green cycad is a mainstay of every cycad collection.  There's not a cycad enthusiast who's not growing this species.  It is native to the Eastern Cape in South Africa.  There are quite a few sub-varieties – all a bit different.  So, when you see an Encephalartos natalensis in a garden, it may look a bit different than the next one you see.  Trunks get up to twenty feet in a century or two.  Leaves are five to eight feet long, straight or minimally arched, and more compact in bright sun.  Growth rate is medium to fast.  I'd consider this a medium to large species.  Cold tolerance is about 22 degrees F.

ENCEPHALARTOS NATALENSIS X WOODII
BAND SIZE SEEDLING
F1 HYBRID OF A TOTALLY EXTINCT PLANT IN THE WILD

As many of you know, Encephalartos woodii is extinct in the wild.  And, there is only one "mother" male plant in a botanical garden in Durbin, South Africa.  Pups have been removed from that plant and, over many generations, grown well in gardens worldwide.  But, there are no females.  Because of this male E. woodii pollen has been used on similar cycads to make interesting hybrids.  Most take on some of the characteristics of woodii. 
Closest to E. woodii from a genetic point of view is Encephalartos natalensis.  The first hybrid below is the cross of these two with E. natalensis being the seed bearer.

This medium sized, green leaf cycad comes from the Lebombo Mountains in the Republic of South Africa.  It may indeed be the same species.  It has several habitat locations.  In more recent times, the species of E. senticosus was split from this complex.  E. lebomboensis has a trunk that is fairly narrow for its trunk height of ten to twelve feet. I call this a "medium" size because leaves are typically only four to six feet long with widths of about two feet.  Leaflets are a glossy green, not very long or wide and mildly armed.  In the average garden, don't expect more than four to six feet in your lifetime.  This is a full sun species and cold hardy to the low 20's F.

FAVORITE CYCAD WITH LONG UPRIGHT LEAVES
A REAL WINNER - EASY TO GROW - CENTRAL AFRICAN

This desirable cycad species first appeared on the market two to three decades ago.  At that time it was known as the "Uganda Giant" and an assortment of other common names.  This species was named after the famous cycad author Loran Whitelock.  It proved to be a quick growing species with very long, upright leaves.  Stems are very thick and can get up to almost fifteen feet tall over time.  Leaves are long - up to twelve to fourteen feet long.  They are green in color.  Leaflets are narrow and armed.  It is quick growing and will tolerate full sun along the coast.  But, I think they look best in part day sun.  If one lives far inland or in a desert area, try strong filtered light.  It has some trouble with dry Santa Ana winds.  Although most enthusiasts can grow it, because of its natural habitat in Central Africa, it is not as cold tolerant as species from colder South Africa.  Figure it'll take perhaps into the mid-twenties F. before showing cold burn.

FERN LIKE CYCAD FROM SOUTH AFRICA

Stangeria eriopus is the only species in this genus and is native to forests in South Africa.  The leaves more resemble a fern than a typical cycad.  It is most closely related to another cycad which branches, Bowenia, from Australia.  It is often described as having two forms: the grassland and the mountain form.  What I’ve found culturally with one batch of seeds is that there seems to be more variation plant to plant than from “variety to variety”.   Leaves are typically under three feet long but have been reported to get over five feet.  Leaflets are rounded at the end, sometimes have serrations and are soft to the touch.  I’ve not seen leaves much over three to four feet long.  Caudexes are small as well.  An eight inch caudex would be large.  They can cone when the caudex is four inches.  They like filtered light or part day sun right on the coast.  We’d found they tolerate temperatures of 24 to 25 degrees F. with no problem.  They are a very cute and small plant
