Discover Tours

Zamia Ferns (Bowenia spectabilis) are unique plants with an interesting history. They were first discovered in the late 1700s by French botanist Jacques Labillardière. At the time, he thought they were ferns, so he named them after the Greek god Zeus.

Zamia Ferns grow slowly and can take many years to reach maturity. They typically reach about two feet tall, with a trunk up to six inches in diameter. The leaves are typically about eight inches long and five inches wide.

Zamia Ferns are found in Australia and parts of Southeast Asia. They grow in moist, shady areas near rivers and streams. They prefer tropical or subtropical climates, and can tolerate temperatures up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

The best time to see Zamia Ferns in the wild is during the late fall or early winter, when the leaves have turned a deep red or orange colour.
