Heart of a Sago

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

One of the few plants that have pre-historic roots, the Sago Palm is a popular landscape plant.  Native to the islands of Southern Japan, this slow grower, is one of the most primitive living seed plants.  Its origins can be traced to the ancient flora of the early Mesozoic era.  Often called "Living Fossils", the Sago has changed very little in 200 million years.
