Originally from the Ngoye Forest of KwaZulu-Natal. It is now extinct in the wild. Fortunately this is the fastest growing species of Encephalartos and one of the most vigorous in cultivation. The leaves are 1.75-2.5m in length, recurving and spreading to form a typical umbrella canopy. Stems up to 5.5m have been recorded.
