Pachypodium ambongense

This product is unavailable

Product #1510

Commonly known as the "lost Pachypodium' as there are very limited early accounts of the species dated in the 1920s. It was brought back into cultivation in the 1990s by Professor Werner Rauh and is the last species to be introduced by him into cultivation. Endemic to North Western Madagascar, it was originally found growing along the Ambongo River. Ambongense is one of the most attractive in the genus with erratic, free forming branches at the apex of the nicely tapered caudex. It has a similar growth pattern as P. baronii and P. decaryi but with longer, more numerous spines. Its distinct flowers are white with a yellow throat. 

Available in 2 inch pots.
