    Description

Operculicarya decaryi - Elephant Tree

This listing is for a pack of 5 seeds.

This is a native of Madagascar, where it is known as a Jabily - in succulent growing circles it is known as the Elephant tree as its thickened stem and gnarled and fissured bark is reminiscent of elephant skin.  It is a natural growing bonsai, or as close as possible as it is to find one in nature.

It is a caudiciform succulent with a very thickened base which carry twiggy almost wiry stems. The leaves are quite small and have crinkled edges and the flowers are small and red, carried on the end of the stems in groups of around 5 or so.

As a bonsai, it needs little or no training as it produces a naturally dwarf form with no intervention at all. Easy to grow from seed, it soon shows the characteristics that mark it out as something special in the succulent world.  Not offered very often anywhere, so this is an opportunity to grow your very own Elephant Tree.
