Pachypodium geayi – Madagascar Palm (4″ pot)


This is an easy to grow, drought tolerant, tropical, unusual, succulent plant. The bluish gray leaves form only at the top of the trunk, like a Palm Tree, however the Madagascar Palm is not really a palm. I like the foliage more on P. geayi vs. the P. lamerei.

Ships in 4″ pot. Leaves drop in the winter. New leaves in spring.
