This is certainly the most cold hardy of all cycads. It will take severe frosts, and is tolerant of damp and wet as well as drought conditions.
It is very fast and easy to grow, and, with heavy fertilizing, will produce three flushes of dark green to bluish leaves per year, and grow up to an incredible 60 cm of trunk in just five years from seed!
