Cycads are a fascinating group of plants. Despite appearances, they are not palms, but akin to conifers. This one, Microcycas calocoma, only occurs on Cuba, an island rich in exceptional plants. Join Dr. Scott Zona as he explores the plants of Cuba and the Caribbean in Heronswood’s next Traveler’s Garden webinar this Friday. Get tickets at heronswood.odoo.com/event #floraofthecaribbean #cubaplants #cycads
