This man-made hybrid between the mainland Chinese Cycas guizhouensis and the Taiwanese Cycas taitungensis was created by Florida cycad guru, Robert Chumley. This has proven to be a very vigorous grower, which has so far endured only one winter outdoors for us, including many nights at 16 degrees F. While both parents are similar in appearance, the vigor of the hybrid is truly amazing. We're guessing that this will make a 3' tall x 5' wide specimen in 10 years...but then again, that's a guess. Stock is very limited, so don't dilly least not until after you've ordered.
