Zamia floridana


Zamia floridana

Common Name: Coontie

Origin: Native to Florida

Height: Up to 5’

Light: Partial to full sun

Water: Drought resistant


Comments: The feather-like, leathery foliage of Coontie emerges from a large underground storage root in the early years before a trunk develops. Providing a tropical landscape effect, Coontie’s unique growth habit is ideally suited for use as a specimen or container planting. It looks particularly attractive when plants of differing sizes are planted together to form a clumping, specimen-like effect.
