Zamia

Zamia 1

We always like seeing the Zamias (Macrozamia riedlei) growing in Bold Park. They look so tropical and seem entirely out of place in the dry West Australian bush around Perth. But these primitive cycads are native to the southwest of the state, from about Perth to Albany. We noticed this Zamia recently and stopped to admire its huge seed cone.
