Encephalartos concinnus

Encephalartos concinnusEncephalartos concinnus is a hard-to-find cycad, as it does not occur in large numbers in any of its localities, but rather in small, isolated colonies. Historically, the lack of access to this plant and its seeds have made it a very rare plant in cultivation.

Its name means “neat” or “elegant” in Latin, due to the neat arrangement of the male cone scales.

Encephalartos concinnus is a medium-to-large-sized cycad. It grows to 10 feet in trunk height, often producing multiple trunks and multiple branches. Its straight leaves are dark green in color, with a distinct blue accent for those plants growing in the shade.

Encephalartos concinnus grows in a hot, dry habitat,in woodland or grassland on cliffs and rocky hills, in Zimbabwe.
