Cycas couttsiana

This ultra-blue Australian cycad is distinguished from other Australian species by the relatively broad, bluish leaflets with slightly recurved margins, the persistent white tomentum (fuzz), and its blue seeds.

Benefits of this plant include high tolerance to sun, drought, heat, cold and frost. According to Loran Whitelock, in The Cycads, "Frost is not uncommon in this cycad's habitat, and plants in cultivation have shown an exceptional tolerance to cold."

These plants are rarely available in the USA, so this may be an opportunity to benefit from a direct import at better prices than normal.
