Answer: Zamia furfuracea, or cardboard palm, is related to Sago Palm and native to the coastal areas of Mexico. It grows best in afternoon shade in hot inland areas. If you can find a spot with morning sun and afternoon shade, it should flourish. If you're not exactly sure where it will perform best, try putting it in a container and setting it in a likely garden spot. If it doesn't thrive, move it to another location. Eventually you'll find just the right spot for your cardboard palm and you can plant it in the ground. Enjoy!
