Alluaudia procera, native to Madagascar, is a very unusual xerophytic plant with whiplike branches ascending from a basal trunk. These branches have conical thorns and very succulent, ovate green leaves to 1.5" in length. In habitat, these stems have been known to reach 45' in height, but in cultivation, to 15' in height is more common. Sprays of small white flowers appear from the apical growing tip during May and June. Excellent landscape plant. Cold and drought tolerant. Requires very porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright light to full sun. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost to prevent scarring.
