Sago palms are not palm trees at all – these attractive, low-growing plants are actually cycads.  Sago palms are naturally found in tropical/subtropical environments; they are also ornamental bonsai houseplants.

All parts of sago palm are considered poisonous, with the seeds (nuts) being the most toxic part of the plant.Sago Palm seed

 Sago palm contains cycasin, which is the primary active toxic agent resulting in severe liver failure in dogs.

We as a company want to help make more people aware that many plants in our landscape can be toxic to animals.
