This Central American Zamia is turning out to be one of the nicer and hardier landscape plants for southern California (probably do great in Florida, too). And takes a great deal of sun. Leaves erupt out of ground (subterranean caudex) about 3'-4' and have light green, nearly smooth relatively narrow leaflets (tiny terminal tooth/teeth though not in the plants I saw). Basically an attractive, user-friendly and somewhat sun and cold hardy Zamia.
