Cycas sp. (Silver)
Thai Silver Sago
Native to mountain forests at moderate and high altitudes in Kanjanaburi province in western Thailand, this very attractive, undescribed species has only recently been discovered. It sports a beautiful crown of most stunning, silvery-white foliage, carried by short, stocky trunks often blackened by fire. In cultivation it should grow best in subtropical/warm temperate areas and should have no problem with an occasional light freeze.
