An unusual plant called a baseball plant. This plant is really neat because it forms a huge caudex or swollen trunk. It goes dormant in the winter time and looses all its leaves. In the spring/summer it sprouts palm-shaped greenish-blue leaves with pretty red flowers. This plant is great in containers and grows well in full sun. It likes to have good drainage, a cactus/succulent soil mix is perfect. Avoid freezing temperatures. Perfect unusual plant for collectors, not easily found!
