Scientific Name: Pachypodium Lamerei
This succulent small tree looks like a combination of a cactus and a palm. The grouped spines on the gray trunk are interesting, but it’s the white flowers with twisting petals that are the plant’s ornamental forte. It has tongue-like leaves. Each is shiny dark green with a lighter colored, prominent midrib.
