Cycas taitungensis hails from Taiwan, and in 2008, we were fortunate to visit the rocky, exposed hillsides in the Taitung Prefecture of southeastern Taiwan where this cycad calls home. Cycas taitungensis is similar in appearance to the popular house plant, Cycas revoluta. In 7-9 years (temperate climates), Cycas taitungensis forms a large rosette of stunning 5' long, dark green, plastic-like fronds circling the leg-sized trunk which can eventually reach 10' tall. While the foliage will burn back at 20 degrees F, all of our plants resprouted during their annual late spring flush, from 7 degrees F in 2009. We recommend you establish these early in the season and mulch well until you have a robust trunk.
