Pachypodium lamerei var. ramosum
A dry deciduous, succulent dwarf tree from dry southern Madagascar with a thick, pale trunk that holds a compact, sparsely branching crown. The simple, glossy leaves form a palmlike rosette on top of each spiny shoot. The flowers are white, fragrant and reminiscent of those of Plumeria. A great ornamental for the drier tropics and a nice and very popular indoor plant elsewhere.
