Pachypodium lamerei

This is the most common of the Pachypodiums, Pachypodium lamerei, commonly called the Madagascar Palm, though - of course - it's not a palm. There's a reason it's more common: It's quite easy to grow. That's a plus, not a negative. Sure, there are some more interesting Pachypodiums, but some of them are a bit of a challenge - at least in our climate.
But, of course, we like a challenge; but not everyone does. These are just the plant for you, perfect for your deck or porch during the warmer months, and doesn't particularly object to a dry treatment during the colder months.
