This rare cycad hails from China's southern Sichuan and northern Yunnan provinces, where it was discovered and named in 1979. Its natural habitat consists of dry, scrubby, wooded slopes where it grows in alkaline soils. Its location makes it one of the most cold hardy cycad species. In our trials so far, the leaves are burned back at temperatures below 12 degrees F, but they return nicely in spring. When mature, Cycas panzhihuaensis will develop a 6' tall trunk topped with a ring of stiff "fronds" which emerge green when young but later change to glaucous.
