This plant grows at the Jacksonville (Florida) Zoo & Gardens (borderline Zone 8b/9a). It's zig-zag sharp edged foliage reminds me very much of the rediscovered Australian Wollemi Pine (Wollemia nobilis)

It is apparently very slow growing. In the zoo gardens, it is not much more than about 15 inches high after several years.

I've seen this plant growing in a coastal garden,Zone 10. The owner said it was unaffected by the conditions. It was very slow growing, about 3ft in 8 years and was impressive rather than attractive,it looked a very dark green with a very rigid and spiky growth habit.
