A special succulent called Pachypodium rosulatum.
This succulent from Madagascar produces very pretty
yellow flowers from February through May. It is one
of the most beautiful blooming succulents. The plant
sends out long shoots forming yellow buds and flowers
which is very neat. It has small green leaves which
drop in the fall/winter time. The trunk is a neat
silver color. P. rosulatum grows best outdoors in
direct full sun. Like any other cactus/succulent it
can take a good amount of drought. It is excellent
for pot culture and likes to be in small pots. It
is a slow grower and not every plant produces seeds
every year and can be hard to find for sale. Large
specimens are rare to see offered for sale.
