Lepidozamia peroffskianaa is possibly the most ornamental of all Cycads. It is native to subtropical Eastern Australia. It is beautiful in all its parts. Leaves are shiny, elegant, spineless, of a rich dark green. Growth is slow, especially during youth. Old, centenary plants get very tall in Australian forests. Cones are huge and fascinating.
It is one of the fews cycads suitable for growing indoors as a house plant. It needs drained, moist soils and some shade. Lepidozamia peroffskiana is not a tropical plant. It takes light frosts and grows very well in the warmer Mediterranean aereas.
It is a slow species and we offer seven years old plants. The size of this plant is: h= 100-120 cm. B=9-12 cm. Much like the ones in the picture on the right. The container is too large and heavy (25x25 cm) so we will bare-root the plant in order to ship it to you, wrapped in moist sphagnum or perlite. We know they can stand bare-rooting ! We ship worldwide.
