Rare Pachypodium rosulatum
This sale is for 5 seeds

Madagascar palm, Millionaire's Daffodils, Elephant's Foot Plant

Pachypodium rosulatum is a very rare plant from Madagascar. Closely related to the Pachypodium lamerii but less common. Short and thick caudex branching into cylidrical arms dense with stout spines, and topped by a rosette of narrow oblanceolate leaves. The base is quite swollen, with stout branching mostly upright and some branching occurs from the lower base.
The Pachypodium tends to lose its leave and go dormant in Winter. It then needs very little water. Its rich green glossy foliage, showy yellow flowers on long stems and ease of culture make it one of the more rewarding of the genus.
Habit: Shrub-like up to 1 m high, diameter up to 1.50 m, with a squat pachycaul trunk (inflated base).
Caudex: Spineless, strongly succulent to subglobose and (at least apically) spiny that turns silver grey as it ages. After the plant first flowers, it begins to branch until it forms a head of short, thick, tapered branches with groups of leaves sprouting from the tips of the branches.
Frost tender, best kept as potted plant.
