Cycads are a group of primitive plants, similar in shape to palms and ferns. They are gymnosperms, in the order Cycadales, so they do not produce flowers, but they do grow cones, like pines and other conifers. They are found across much of the warmer parts of the world and they are often endangered and restricted to inaccessible areas. Some grow in cold mountainous areas and tolerate frost and snow.
Most Cycad species perform well in the garden and make excellent potted plants. Some have become popular ornamentals, while others are very rare and are protected by law as CITES species. Our cycads are established plants grown from seed, two or more years old, grown in tall pots. All plants are legally produced. We offer the largest selection in Europe of the genus Cycas, with many new cold-hardy chinese species. Visit the cycad section in our blog and learn why our cycads have an excellent quality.
Edentata is one of the most beautiful of the coastal Asian cycads. Leaves are glossy, with golden prominent veins. Leaf bases and young stems are coated with a reddish-golden "fur". It is quite fast and easy to grow and just as hardy as the typical rumphii-circinalis.
Leaf Height = 90 - 100cm , 8-10 cm base. 5-6 years old. Native to the mountain rainforests of the subtropical island of Hainan, China.
9 years old, as in the picture. Leaf Height = > 130 cm , 14 cm base. Native to the mountain rainforests of the subtropical island of Hainan, China.
Unique specimen. Very few mutant seedlings showed up with extra-narrow leaves in our seed batch. 9 years old. Leaf Height = More than 150 cm , 16 cm base. Native to the mountain rainforests of the subtropical island of Hainan, China.
h= 50-60 cm - B= 3-4 cm. Australian cycad with glossy green leaves.
h= 40-50 cm. 5-7 cm base. Australian Cycas with showy glossy foliage. It is the southernmost species of Cycas, found at 26°S in southeast Queensland. It can stand light, occasional frosts.
Distinct Chinese cycad, from inland colder aereas, characterised by the short stout trunks with a thick coat of orange-brown wool.We offer a plant of this size: H= 50-60 cm Base: 3-4 cm

Cycas revoluta is a slow-growing, evergreen palm-like plant with an erect main stem that is usually around 0.5 - 2 metres tall, often with few basal branches, but sometimes aerially branched.
H = 80-120 cm. Base = 8-10 cm. New Chinese species described in 2006 from cool mountain forests between 700 and 800 m (2300 and 2600 ft) near the city of Shanya, on the island of Hainan.
This is a second generation (F2) cross of Cycas debaoensis and C. revoluta. This means that all our seedlings are not an exact mix of the two species as it was in the first generation F1.
2 years old, 20-30 cm tall. This Dioon is elegant and different, with a stout trunk and glowing blue arching leaves with "V"arranged leaflets. It was described in 2003 and it is also frost hardy. Seeds are hard to find and awfully expensive, but we got a few for our nursery.
