    Description

Adansonia madagascariensis - Baobab

This listing is for a pack of 5 seeds of this rare endemic of Madagascar.

This is another large sized Baobab from the Northern areas of Madagascar.  Rare in habitat due to the elimination of the forested areas in which it grows, it is now officially on the decline with a status of near threatened.  It grows up to 20 metres tall at a slow rate (initially the seedlings will grow quickly, but will slow down once the caudex starts to fill out), the caudex (trunk) may be up to 5 metres wide in fully grown trees.  It flowers in the Summer, these being reddish brown and heavily scented scented.  These flowers are amongst the largest produced by any baobab and are quite spectacular.

The seeds that follow the flowers are hard and kidney shaped.  They will germinate readily and have a very long period of viability.

Young plants make handsome specimens with the finger like glossy green leaves and their thickening stems.  The fact that growth slows down should not be an issue as any baobab will out live the person sowing it as they can live for many centuries.
