One of my favorite tropical accents in the desert! Evergreen but can have leaf burn on extremely cold winters. Seems to look best with afternoon shade. Be weary of reflected sun in Las Vegas as this will fry sago palm leaves. If growing in full sun, it may be best to have a groundcover around it:) Trailing lantana seems to help in my yard.

I love this plant. I have about a dozen of them in my yard ranging from a few years old to several decades. Ive been somewhat successful in propagating them, mostly by hit or miss. i would like to know if there is anyone in my area (solid 9) that has been successful.
