Bowenia spectabilis

Bowenia spectabilisBowenia spectabilis is very similar in appearance to Bowenia serrulata, with smooth, rather than serrated leaves and leaflets. Bowenia spectabilis leaves stand up straight from the underground tuber, up to 5 feet high, and are branched, usually having about 7 branches on a mature leaf. The individual leaflets, arranged bipinnately around the stem, are usually between 2.5 - 4 inches long, 0.75 - 1.25 inches wide and are a dark, shiny green, with smooth edges.

Bowenia spectabilis are forest plants, so require filtered sun, and a moist, well-drained soil, with humidity.

While not as commonly grown as Bowenia serrulata, Bowenia spectabilis makes a very nice feature plant in a shady situation, and are also very good pot plants.
