Quote from the author;
'In The Cycads, I have attempted to produce a reliable reference book for both botanist and gardener by bringing together all the information that is available on each genus and species. There are few other groups of plants, with the possible exception ofpalms, that can rival cycads for variety of foliage, size, and general habit. Cycads are very ornamental with their palmlike structure and their variety ofleafshapes, sizes, and color s. They have not, however, been commonly used in landscape planting. The one exception is the Japanese Cycas revoluta, sago palm, which is probably the most widely grown cycad in the world. Cycads are tough and durable plants, some suited to full sun whereas others need shady conditions. The shade-loving species make fine houseplants, and both sun and shade plants are exceptional as potted specimens.'
