Cycads are ancient cone bearing plants that do not produce flowers. They are very slow growing with palm-like leaves extending from a central trunk. Male and female cones are borne on separate plants.
The main flower colour is other. Palm like leaves arising from short thick trunk. Male and female cones.
Seeds formed in female cones have a high starch content, and were used by indigenous people for food, but only after extensive preparation including washing to leach out dangerous toxins.
