The Madagascar Palm Tree !!

3개월 전

Walking through King Rama IX Park last week i came across this very dangerous deadly looking trees i mean honestly i loved the looks of these trees very beautiful to look at with it's crop of green head and some pretty flowers flowing over the top of these Madagascar palm trees but truly if you fell on one you would bleed to death in pain would be like falling on a bed of nails believe me touching and feeling these spikes protruding out of their fat trunks , they were as strong as nails.

The actual scientific name for this tree is Pachypodium Lamerei Drake tree that's a mouth full and is from the flowering plant in the Dogbane family Apocynaceae meaning it is a succulent plant sucking up the water from it's fat trunk and it comes all the way from Madagascar of the East Coast of Africa certainly a long way from home.

If Madagascar Palms are in a happy environment and healthy they will grow about 12 inches (30 cm) a year and they grow to a height of 5 to 6 meters tall and bloom profusely in warm climates.

If the Madagascar tree is grown outdoors it develops large white fragrant flowers at the top of the plant but you can grow them indoors also but the tree will keep itself to a minimal size and will rarely flower. They do say it's a easy tree to take care of and grow they do like the warm climates and full sunlight.
