Also known as Cycas revoluta, is a species of gymnosperm in the family Cycadaceae, native to southern Japan including the Ryukyu Islands. It is one of several species used for the production of sago, as well as an ornamental plant.
The leaves are a deep semiglossy green and about 50â150Â cm (20â59Â in) long when the plants are of a reproductive age. They grow out into a feather-like rosette to 1Â m (3.3Â ft) in diameter. The crowded, stiff, narrow leaflets are 8â18Â cm (3.1â7.1Â in) long and have strongly recurved or revolute edges. The basal leaflets become more like spines. The petiole or stems of the sago cycad are 6â10Â cm (2.4â3.9Â in) long and have small protective barbs.
