The Sago Palm is the most commercially grown palm in the world. It is grown as a decorative plant in containers in homes, hotels, and municipal buildings all over the world. It is also widely grown as an ornamental plant in warmer climate landscapes. The Sago palm is generally used as a low-growing shrubby 3-5 foot palm plant, although it can grow to 15 feet, in 200 years. The trunk is very slow growing, so you may want to install the size you are looking for or it could be a long wait. Sago Palms have dark green 3-4 foot long stiff leaves that grow as a rosette atop its stubby fat brown trunk. Sago palms are either male or female plants that look the same, with exception to their reproductive flower. The Sago Palm flower is beautiful and interesting in form. The female flower is spherical in shape, and the male flower is phallic in shape. Sago palms make great accents to any landscape or patio. They are drought tolerant, as well as sun or shade tolerant, and mix well with other palms to complete a tropical look in your landscape. (Grows in Zones 8-10. Refer to Zone Map.)
