Beaucarnea recurvata | Ponytail Palm

(Nolina recurvata)

Be aware this plant is slow growing as well as sensitive to cold below 30F. Often grown as a houseplant in a container—brought indoors when cold threatens, then taken back outside after danger of frost has passed. Long, strap-shaped leaves drape downward from the top of the branches. The broad base of the trunk is the finishing touch for an interesting and unique accent specimen.
