    Description

Fouquieria splendens - Ocotillo

This listing is for a pack of 5 seeds of this unusual succulent plant.

This is a pachycaul shrub (one producing a water storing trunk) from South Western USA and Northern Mexico.  It grows up to 3 metres tall in habitat and branches from the base producing a thicket of branches.  Its leaves are quite small and it is dry deciduous (the leaves fall during the dry season).  It can survive on as little as 8 inches of rain per year.

In the spring and summer it produces clusters of red tubular flowers, each cluster being up to 60 cm long.  In habitat these are pollinated by hummingbirds.  After flowering the seeds develop in 2 cm long capsules.

Easy from seed it is often used as an unusual bonsai subject due to its natural growing habit.
