Sago Palms boast feathery, bright green foliage and grow relatively slow. They are a popular choice for houseplants because of their need for warmth, humidity and light. When planting outdoors make sure your Sago Palm gets both sunlight and plenty of shade. They do well in most soils as long as they have good drainage. While Sago Palms look like true palms they are actually cycads, an ancient type of tropical plants that does not produce fruits or flowers, but they grow and look very similarly to true palms. Perfect for containers on porches but need to be brought indoors and placed in areas of high sunlight to thrive when it’s cold if you live in areas other than USDA Zones 8-11!
