Despite it's common name, Pachypodium lamerei is not a palm but rather a succulent from Madagascar. It exhibits a robust trunk with 1 inch thorns that make it less appetizing to animals. Branches are formed after flowering much like plumeria with an inflorescence which is also similar in appearance. This is a hardy plant that has proven itself in temperate areas. Take this opportunity to grow this unique plant. Seeds are fast and easy to germinate using typical techniques. Free germiating instructions included.
