This Jamia sp is widely planted as an ornamental plant in lawns and pots. Not able to determine which species is it. Please suggest ID.


Looks like Z. furfuracea


Yes Sir. The earlier posts on Zamia also indicate it as Z.furfuracea. I am taking it as Zamia furfuracea L.f. ex Aiton. The correct spelling is Zamia, not Zammia, as written in my posting; sincerely regretted.


Yes this looks like Zamia furfuracea.

Zamia resembles, in external morphology, to palms but a member of very different group ‘Gymnosperms’.
