Cycas revoluta is a plant which originated in southern Japan and is a paradigmatic example of false palms or cycads. In Spain it grows freely along the coastal ridges and especially in the Mediterranean area although it can cope with quite cold temperatures too. It is ideal as an outdoor palm in practically the whole of Europe.
If ingested, it is extremely poisonous, both for people and animals. Pets are at higher risk as it is a particularly tasty plant.
Resistance to cold: -10º.
