Macrozamia johnsonii Cycad. A large-growing cycad with a rounded head of blue-green foliage on a stout trunk to 10 feet tall. From the thick stout trunk this plant holds many 5 to 7 foot long blue-green leaves that rise erect and then strongly arch over with 120 to 220 leaflets that are flattened and not keeled as they are for Macrozamia moorei with leaflets that are 8 to 12 inches long in the middle of the leaf but reduced towards both ends with the basal leaves reduced to nearly spinelike and looking like a saw blade near the base. Unlike many other cycads, this plant will continually put on leaves instead of having flushes of leaves so it can look more like a palm with a full head of leaves. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-drained soil and irrigate occasionally to infrequently. Hardy and evergreen to 20 °F.
