Pachypodium Lamerei var Fiherense - Madagascar succulent
This truly original succulent comes from the island of Madagascar off the East coast of Mozambique. Madagascar has evolved on its own for millions of years, even its dinosaur fossils are found nowhere else.
The variant Fiherense is a small, compact growth of Pachypodium Lamerei, reaching only around 1-2m tall. Its thick trunk is lined with groups of 3 spines, with lance-shaped leaves around 35cm in length produced from the growing tip.
Branching occurs after the first flowering, which occurs earlier than other varieties. Flowers are creamy white, yellow throated, around 10 cm across.
A must have plant for the succulent collection.!
Likes full sun, a well drained soil, and left dry in the winter, when it will shed its leaves. Keep above 10°C.
