Positive palmbob On Jun 5, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

One of the more common species available in cultivation, and one of the first available to so many throughout the world. Because of this, most botanical gardens where one finds cycads will have large, old plants of this species. It is similar in appearance to E natalensis- long, straight, deep green leaves with simple sharp tips lancelote leaflets (some leaflets have small spines on them). It is a relatively fast grower and does well in many different soils and climates. From Tanzania and Kenya.
