Cycad E. arenarius
This cycad specie is endemic to South Africa. These plants grow in a small, limited area near Alexandria in the Eastern Cape Province, where they grow on stabilized sand dunes. These Plants will do well in full sun or semi shade. There is also a very rare "blue" form that is virtually extinct in nature, that should be grown in full sun.
