  1. One can almost picture the dinosaurs alongside those Cycads! Very interesting post, Liz. The living “fossil” plant here is Horsetail, (Equisetum). A vascular plant that reproduces by spores rather than seeds. This species dates back over 100 million years to late Paleozoic forests.
    Thank you for the thought-provoking post, and inspiration for taking a look at our local “fossil” plants 🙂
