Ponytail PalmBeaucarnea recurvata
Common Name: Ponytail Palm, Bottle Palm, Elephants Foot Tree
The Ponytail Palm (Beaucamea) is an evergreen perennial. This palm however, it not actually a palm at all. It's a succulent. It consist of a large, domed, "stump", which tapers off into a thinner stem. From the top of the stem, one or more rosettes of long, green, leather leaves develop as the plant ages. Indorrs, the leaves can get up to 3 feet long but outdorrs, they may be double that length. Ponytail palms are part of the agave family, but while the leaves are rough to the touch, they are much less stiff and thorny than generally expected from an agave. It has become an ornamental plant due to its ability to thrive indoors and retains water through its swollen trunk.
