Cycas shanyaensis (also known as ‘Cycas shanyagensis’) is a newly described (2006) species. It grows in mountain forests between 2300 and 2600 feet in altitude on China’s Hainan Island, near the city of Shanya, from which Cycas shanyaensis gets its name. This plant was originally described as Cycas shanyagensis, due to a misspelling.
Cycas shanyaensis trunk can grow over long-term to 6-10 feet tall, relatively slender, at 8-10 inches in diameter, developing a crown of long graceful leaves to 5.5 feet long, with leaflets up to 10 inches long. It is very new in cultivation yet but should do well in both subtropical, and warm temperate climates, plus Mediterranean climates in part shade.

You’ll notice we list and price cycads by their caudex size (diameter in inches). The caudex is a cycad’s woody, bulblike trunk. Caudex diameter is a good measure of a cycad's age. The chart below can give you a rough idea of how this translates to pot size.

Caudex Size
Container Size
Up to 1 Inch 1-2 Gallon
1 Inch to 3 Inch 3-5 Gallon
3 Inches to 7 Inches 15 Gallon
7 Inches and Up 24 Inch Box
