Pachypodium Densiflorum v Densiflorum
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.
Similar in appearance to P Rosulatum, excepting that the flowers open flat. Its name Densiflora is well deserved as it produces lots of bright yellow flowers in spring. Short and wide leaves grow from the top of each branch. Branches early in life, a moderately quick growing species,
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.
