Product Description

PALM: Palms are one of the most documented and most studied plants in the world and there are over 2600 species of palm tree types known today. Palm trees have an amazing amount of variations and differences in morphology, creating one the most diverse range of species. Basic characteristics of palm trees include growth from a single stem with crowns of evergreen leaves arranged in either a fan shape or feathery blooms. Most palms have inflorescence containing colorful flowers, which are usually small and white. The fruits of palms are considered to be drupes, or fruits containing a fleshy, soft part surrounding a hard seed center.

The Mexican Cycas is a true "living fossil", the name often applied to cycads because they have changed very little in the last 200 million years. Dioon edule is truly a handsome and distinctive specimen. And it is one of the most cold hardy cycads. Mature and established plants have been reported to tolerate temperatures down to 9 F for several days. This plant may eventually grow to just over ten feet in height -- a most useful size for landscape design. Dioon edule is always in high demand but seeds are usually quite scarce. Surprisingly easy to grow and care for, the Dioon edule is indeed a prized specimen and bound to attract many admirers.
