The queen sago belongs to the Cycadaceae, a family of plants with prehistorical features. In its scientific name, the term circinalis is Latin for ‘spiral,’ making reference to the rolled leaflets (parts of the leaves) during its young phase.

Similar to a small palm, it has long, rigid, and shiny leaves that can reach up to one meter long. Native from Japan, it is commonly found in gardens and other landscape design compositions.
