PONYTAIL PALM BEAUCARNEA RECURVATA HOUSE OR GARDEN DROUGHT TOLERANT $1.30

WE GREW THESE OURSELVES SO WE CAN SELL THEM TO OUR BUYERS PRETTY CHEAPLY!

Easy to grow and care for and a stunning architectural plants that can be grown as a houseplant in the home or outside as a statement in the garden!  Large stems of small, fragrant cream flowers that bees adore! These seeds have come from our own trees. It’s been 18 years that I have been waiting and although they flower every year they never flowered at the same time! They finally grew flowers at the same time this year, the flowers were pollinated and now we have seeds! The seeds take 4 months to dry on the plant and were harvested a few weeks ago.

These grow a huge bulb at the base which stores water for the plant and makes them extremely heavy! Make sure you plant any garden grown specimen in the right place, getting them out of the soil is not a bother as they grow hardly any deep roots but to try dragging them across the garden on a tarp has got to be one of the hardest things I have ever done in the garden! With such shallow roots they are fine to plant over water pipes and such, they will not dive down into your pipes! Our two trees live in the middle of our two cement driveways, they get extreme heat in summer and are in full sun. They are extremely drought tolerant and take little care, we strip the dead leaves a few times a year and cut off the dead flower spikes and that is about it. No watering and no issues. They attract ladybirds and we often see the babies hatching out by the hundreds! We save the dead leaves for lighting our fireplace in winter and they can be composted too.

Mine have no insect damage of any kind ever. These can be kept outside or inside as a houseplant. If you keep it inside it will need to be watered but not too much!
