Full sun to light shade, Origin: Madagascan caudiciform with seed pods with spines. They get stuck to your fingers. Better not to pick up. Uncarina peltata is of the Pedaliaceae family. In 1895 Otto Stapf gave this plant its name. They come from northern to western Madagascar. they grow in a rich and well drained soil. they require water and some sun. The swollen stem can grow to fifteen centimetres in diameter and reach for one to three metres when grown in ground in similar climate. The plants I put in the ground in San Diego about 7 years ago are probably 6 feet wide, 4' feet hight with a caudex of about 20". The flowers are yellow with deep purple inside.
