Sago Palm

Cycas revoluta

Although this species is named after and appears similar to palms in appearance, it is formally classified as a conifer. This evergreen Japanese cycad creates a striking display of stiff, spiky rosettes comprised of dark green fronds. Foliage branches out from a central, woody pineapple-like trunk that slowly reaches a height of 10 feet tall. Instantly adds a tropical element to the landscape, or makes an excellent container or houseplant.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
