Dioon spinulosum

Although they look like palms, these are related to conifers, bearing cones with flat, woolly scales and chestnut-size seeds that are poisonous when raw. Cooked and ground into meal, the seeds can be used to make tortillas. Use these evergreens to add a tropical touch to landscapes or containers. Plant in full sun and protect from frosts.
