Encephalartos longifolius, also known as the Suurberg Cycad or Thunberg’s Cycad, is a low-growing palm-like cycad that is endemic to South Africa. The species name comes from the Latin longis, long and folius, leaf. This species is found in coastal regions of Eastern Cape Province, South Africa growing at heights of up to six hundred metres. It grows in a variety of different habitats on the mountain ridges from west of Joubertina in the Kouga mountains east to near Grahamstown. There are a large number of locations where breadpalms grow but on the whole, populations are declining. Interesting Note: This was the first cycad seen by the early colonists
