The Emperor Sago Palm is famous for its vigorous growth, producing as many as 6 new sets of leaves per year. It’s native to mountainous regions of Taiwan, found on steep slopes. It can grow up to 3.5m tall, usually with 1 trunk. Similar in form to the Cycas revoluta, the "Sago Palm", however Cycas taitungensis is a more vigorous grower that has leaflets that are longer, broader and flatter than its more famous cousin. Cycas taitungensis is also very cold-tolerant. Cycas taitungensis grows well in full sun as well as partial shade.
