A special succulent called Pachypodium rosulatum or commonly known as Elephant's Foot Plant or Madagascar Palm. This succulent from Madagascar produces very pretty yellow flowers during the winter and spring. 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.
