The first six photos here show a plant I’m putting on special. This is a very nice 15gallon plant with a caudex that is approximately 5 x 18 inches and probably an age of about 12 to 15 years. It came from a collection of container grown plant that were outdoors in Orange County, CA. Below the plant for sale are garden photos. This species is native to Madagascar, the eastern coast of Africa and the Comoro Islands. It is a fast growing species gets to a native height of sometimes twenty feet or more. Plants grown domestically are typically ten feet or a bit more in California. This species trunks are about eight to ten inches thick with leaves five to six feet long and soft to the touch. There is small armor on the leaf stem, but the leaflets have no spines. Leaf color is green to blue-green.
Along the coast this species tolerates full sun. Far inland areas should utilize filtered light or morning sun. Cold hardiness is into the low 20’s F. We have a whole assortment of sizes available including nice 5g plants and larger. We have about five in the 15g size. Shipping possible.
