I'm still learning the ABC's of landscaping in Florida. Imagine my surprise when this Sago palm which was planted last fall started sprouting a large cone.
I quickly headed to the Internet to research Sago palms, and talked over the fence with my neighbors, always a wealth of knowledge. I had not known cycads are "dioecious", which means there are males and females. I think my blog viewers can figure out which category this little fella fits into.
There must be some things a girl from Tennessee can't quite get out of her system. Gardening seems to be one them and I love my Pensacola Beach home with its yard of sugar-white sand and beautiful palms which seem to hold one surprise after another.
