What is the plant
Macrozamia moorei is a cycad in the family Zamiaceae, native to Queensland. The species was described by Ferdinand von Mueller in 1881, naming it after Charles Moore, director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney.
Macrozamia moorei is the tallest-growing species of Macrozamia, growing to 7 metres (23 ft) tall with a trunk 50–80 cm diameter. It has keeled leaves up to 2.5 metres (8.2 ft) long, with short petioles bearing numerous spines, and 120–220 leaflets, each leaflet 20–35 cm long and 5–10 mm broad. The plant is cultivated by specialty plant nurseries as an ornamental plant. Primeval cycads like this Macrozamia moorei are some of the oldest plants still living on the planet that trace their origins back to the ancient flora of the early Mesozoic era more than 170 million years ago. The particular point of interest, at least botanically, about Macrozamia moorei is that it represents the nearest approach to the Bennettiales, a group of fossil, cycad- like plants existing in the mesozoic era.
