Encephalartos inopinus

Currently out of stock. If you would like to be informed when this plant becomes available, please email us at

This rare cycad is found only in a few small areas of the Lydenburg district of South Africa's Limpopo Province. It grows in thick bush, on cliffs and escarpments on dolomite rocky slopes overlooking gorges. In habitat, these plants are typically pendulous, hanging off the sides of cliffs with the growing point upturned.

It has a spreading crown of flat, bluish leaves with well-spaced, spineless, broad-based leaflets that droop away from the rachis.
