    • We do not currently ship to AK,AZ,CA,GU,HI,PR
    • Grown, packaged and shipped exclusively by Wekiva Foliage. Dioon edule has a number of common names, thanks to its popularity. These include: chestnut dioon, comb-like leaf, Mexican blue chamal, Mexican cycad, palma de Dolores, palma de Santa Teresita, palma de la virgen (AKA virgin’s palm), and peine.
    • There are actually two subspecies of the plant, Dioon edule var edule and Dioon edule Angustifolium, both of which are on the verge of becoming endangered.
    • This is a slow-growing plant, but it has the ability to achieve a height of nearly 160’ feet in optimal conditions. It is one of two species in the genus (the other being Dioon spinulosum) to bear growth rings, although these only appear every 20 to 30 years. The trunk itself is fairly thin, measuring approximately 8″ to 20″ inches in diameter.
    • A cluster of leaves emerge from the summit in a spiral arrangement. This stiff, upright foliage ranges in color from blue green to bright green and may be dull or semi-glossy.
    • The leaves are flat, measuring 39” to 49” inches long and are oriented in sections with opposing leaflets inserted on the rachis at 180° degrees. Approximately 15 to 150 leathery pinnate leaflets are present, tapering to a sharp point with the basal leaflets reduced into spines.

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
