We love this statuesque palm, it’s a great focal point in a room and a really stunning houseplant!


Madagascar Palm is a fascinating houseplant, its trunk expands with water which helps it survive in really hot, dry climates.  The name ‘Pachypodium’ means ‘thick foot’ because of its water storing capabilities.


The leaves of this style plant burst from the crown and drop down as they grow, giving Pachypodium Lamerei its characteristic looks and charm.  They are variegated - dark green and cream stripe - giving it a striking look. 


Madagascar Palms look wonderful in a room as an eye catching centrepiece or with a group of houseplants. The palm shape of this large houseplant hints at the tropical and makes you think of hot summer holidays and blue skies!
