Pachycormus Discolor - 'Elephant Tree'

10 Seeds

This unusual branching succulent is a native to Western Mexico. A species on its own in its genus, this succulent is very variable in its forms, often appearing radically different in separate plants and flower colour. The trunk and branches are swollen and both contain sponge like wood to store water and a white latex.

Pinnate mid green leaves to around 8 cm long grow along the branches, and in summer bears dense racemes of tiny cream white to yellow or even red flowers to around 5 mm across.

Grow in a well drained loam, likes full sun.
Minimum temperature 15°C.
