King Sago Palms are surprisingly low maintenance. Whether you plant your Sago in your yard or you use it as a houseplant, you will love how easy this tropical plant is to grow. Sago Palms are even deer, pest, and disease resistant.
A crown of stiff, feathery leaves sit atop a chubby, textured, brown trunk. The leaves are deep green and shiny. This tree has an attractive, symmetrical form.
This palm-like tree is slow growing and has a long life expectancy. While Sago Palms can reach heights over 10 feet this can take many years. These tend to widen more than grow in height so they often function more as a shrub than a tree in the landscape.
The King Sago Palm offers phenomenal texture contrast to traditional plants. Sago Palms look beautiful around pools and patios. In warm climates this tropical tree is beautiful to frame your entryway. Plant in groups of 3 or 5 to create a bold tropical look. This exotic plant looks fantastic in containers and is ideal for use as a patio plant. Sago Palms even thrive indoors as a houseplant!
Sago Palms grow in full sun to part shade. Once established your Sago is drought tolerant. Add our balanced, slow release fertilizer when planting and in early spring for best results. King Sago Palms are hardy in zones 8-11. Cooler climates can plant in containers and move them inside in the winter to enjoy them year after year.
Sago Palms are great indoor plants as well. Use a high quality planting medium like our potting mix or Pittmoss Performance mix. Choose a pot only slightly larger than the pot you are repotting from and make sure it drains well. Water your Sago Palm houseplant when the potting soil is beginning to dry and be sure it gets some sunlight. That's it - a little water, a little sun! So easy!

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.
Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.
Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil. Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.
Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.
Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.
Finish up by mulching around your new plant. Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.
Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
