This plant is a Cycad, often referred to as a living fossil. It's antecedents date back about 300 million years. I took this picture in a garden in Pretoria South Africa. Other Cycads can be found in Countries like Australia and Brazil. Although the central flower looks like a pine cone, it bears no relationship.
