Good Stuff: Pachypodium

All I want for Christmas is one of these tress. I pretty sure it's a Pachypodium rosulatum var. gracilius but I could be/probably am terribly wrong. I haven't been able to find anything but seeds which is so not happening. I have a hard enough time with fully grown plants, I doubt I could handle growing one. Anyways some picture:

  1. You are actually right, it is Pachypodium rosulatum gracilius, aka Elephant's Foot Plant. :)

    It its such a beautiful little tree! I have also tried to find it at my local flower shop, but they are pretty rare, at least here in Finland.

    If you would grow it from seeds, it would take several years to get it ''fat'', and look like the pictures above so I wish you luck to find it somewhere.

    And last but least, I love your blog, it is really inspiring :)


  2. These are so cute, I love that they flower!

  3. Would they grow in Arizona home? Or in shade outside?

    1. they are outdoor plants. they would do well in the arizona heat, but probably do best outside

  4. Belíssima planta, comecei a miha coleção de Pachypodium e tenho o Sandersii para venda.
