I'm here for some suggestions for ancient flora for games set prior to the late Cretaceous when most contemporary plants had evolved.]

Some things are obvious such as lichen for scrub, cake decor palms as tree ferns, and Christmas village pines as generic evergreens, but what about vast plains of man-sized ferns? Giant club moss?

Before the advent of the grasses, I think fields of hip height ferns might be the way to go!

I have used several decorative wreaths to create tropical foliage.
These were the last bits pooled together making different trees.

Other pieces served to make shrubbery.

Aquarium plants or mats. They sell roughly 10" by 10" mats in a half a dozen styles. Plants are attached by a plastic grid underneath. Can't beat it for the price!

Collecta make some plastic prehistoric plants – cycads, williamsonia and others. Also try the link below for some alternatives (images).

I ended up ordering these smallish plants to pass as non-specific flora: link link I'll just group them on cardboard or tile in random shapes.

It cracks me up that these obvious miniature plastic plants are packaged as "Wild Animals!"
