    Description

Adansonia grandidieri - Grandidier's Baobab

This listing is for a pack of 5 seeds.

Adansonia grandidier is the largest of the Madgascan baobabs and, visually, the most iconic.  Listed as endangered (again partially due to deforestation), it is also widely grown in cultivation and collections.  It grows to around 25 metres tall with a caudex up to 5 metres in diameter.  It flowers and fruits in the summer and the fruits now appear to be dispered via water, whereas most other species have an animal vector in seed dispersal.  One theory is that the missing dispersal vector is a species of giant lemur that has become extinct in the last several hundred years - given the number of extinctions that have ocurred since the island was colonised, this theory (as to the rarity of plant) seems to be realistic.

The flowers are white, flushed with pale yellow and are sweetly scented.  The seeds that follow the flowers are hard and kidney shaped.  They will germinate readily and have a very long period of viability.
