Positive palmbob On Feb 13, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Attractive medium sized neat cycad that I think looks a bit like a thin-leaved M communis. Has a mostly subterranean caudex, but it can be up to 2' above ground. It holds quite a number of leaves, but not as dense as the large Macrozamias. Leaflets have a sharp end but not too stiff so not a real danger.
