Cycad Species

Cycad SpeciesCycads are woody-stemmed, architectural plants that resemble ferns and palms, but they’re actually cone-bearing plants more closely related to pine trees. As mature plants, cycads resemble living sculptures.

Cycads are living fossils, endangered species, having existed for nearly 280 million years on earth, since the Cretaceous and Jurassic periods, and may have been a primary food of dinosaurs. Fewer than 300 living cycad species remain on earth.

Cycads have become popular landscape plants, because people appreciate their primitive and exotic beauty, their rarity, and their value. To support cycad preservation, we have propagated and grown hundreds of thousands of cycads from seed, and we promote the sale of nursery and garden-grown plants to re-populate the world with these historically significant plants.

When you purchase a nursery-grown cycad such as the plants we offer in these pages, you are part of a worldwide movement to preserve endangered species, by growing these rare and extraordinary plants.
