This is the tallest of Australia’s cycads, and can grow to 10 metres in the wild, but more usually to around 5 metres. It is slow growing. A mature specimen looks somewhat palm-like as the arching leaves grow from a central trunk. Give it plenty of space in the garden as it can reach 5 metres in width. A very easy care plant that can be grown in sun or shade. Drought tolerant.
Be aware that the leaves have sharp spines and edges, and the seeds are poisonous.
