Description

Zamia Furfuracea is also known as the Cardboard Cycad or Cardboard Palm. It’s a tough evergreen plant that gives a great tropical feel with its spike-free thick leaves and fleshy trunk. It doesn’t need flowers to look appealing.

The Cardboard Cycad’s rounded flat leaflets sprout from long horizontal branches that grow in a spiral from the short trunk. It’s a really interesting plant and you’ll just want to touch it.

Because the Cardboard Cycad is salt tolerant it’s a good choice for coastal areas, and its textured features make it an interesting landscaping plant for a pot on the deck or straight into the garden. 

This is a sun and warmth-loving plant that prefers tropical and subtropical climates - it doesn’t appreciate the chill.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I suit a tropical themed garden and I’m great around the pool to soften hard landscaping. I'm really robust, salt-resistant, drought-resistant and sun-loving plus my foliage is tropical and touchable. I look great mass-planted or as a singular feature plant on the deck. 
  • I grow to:  80cms high and 1 metre in width. 

  • I am currently: 20-25cm

  • Where to place me:  In full sun or in partial shade.

  • How far to space me:  Give me a metre to spread out otherwise you won’t get to see my textured foliage.

  • Soil Conditions:  Well-drained, please. I’m hardy but not if my feet are constantly wet. I like a good layer of mulch too. 

    Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

    We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door.

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
