      This is a topic my friend knows well as she studies prehistoric plants, and takes great pleasure in growing them at home. There were a lot of plants around during the dinosaur age, some of which survived mass extinctions and are still found today, such as Cycads, ferns, mosses, wollemi pine, redwoods, ginkgo as well as flowering plants such as the magnolia. If you ever go to the Eden project they have a section on prehistoric plants.
