Thank you everyone for looking.
Ron, the beauty of these plants is that they don't flower at all LOL ! They are Gymnosperms, they bear naked seeds, no flowers but male and female cones. If all goes well the plant can produce male cones in 3 to 4 years and female cones by 5-10 years. The tree planted by Sir. David Attenborough at Kew gardens in 2005 is producing cones now.
When I get back over to South Tampa, I will try and get photos. I'm looking for it on the 'net for you. This was in a large home in a very old part of Tampa. The collector was a doctor. He had plants that no one had. The yard, which is large, was a virtual palm/cycad jungle.
