Listing Detail Tabs




Pachypodium lamerei, the Madagascar Palm, will reach 15 feet in natural environment.
As a houseplant, they are much smaller- not really a palm, but actually a succulent related to the frangipani (Plumeria) and adenium desert rose, all plants belong to the Apocynaceae family.

Grown for its shiny silver trunk covered with thorns. The plant grows a height of three or four feet in just a few years.
It can be grown indoors if you can provide a very sunny window.

When small, it looks rather like a fat, spiky barrel cactus topped with a fringe of glossy green leaves very much the same as the frangipanis, flowers too. Its stem is armed with ferocious spines.
In time, the stem elongates dramatically and, in a few years, it forms a long vertical trunk.
They often develop a single-stemmed trunk, some individuals may develop branching trunks. The leaves form only at the top of the trunk, like a Palm Tree.
Its flowers are pure white with a deep yellow centre and look very like a frangipani. Only mature plants bloom, it is in late spring to early summer. The flowers are 2-3 inches in diameter.
Full sun to light shade with warm temperatures. Water sparingly, it tends to lose its leave and go dormant in Winter.
