Pachy and Buddy

Here are several mature Pachypodium lamerei beggining to come out of their dormancy. You can see a feature of these plants in their limbs; the main growing point was killed by frost, but in the spring two or more brances replaced the dead tip. Big dog there for scale.

Great stand of P. lamerei there Jeff, and putting the 'horse' in for size was a stroke of genius ;-)

Buddy best be careful where he does his business around that yard:)

Nice photo Jeff!


RE: Pachy and Buddy


Wonderful plants. We can't get K. beharensis that big in Riverside, too cold and too hot.


RE: Pachy and Buddy

I have a cutting of this pachy, are they easy to root?
I can usually root anything( I have a chrysanthemum flower in a vase that has rooted!) but my pachy looks like a dead stick!

Great plants Jeffrey, and I love the piebald horse guarding them ;)

RE: Pachy and Buddy

Nice pachy. Is that dog a Great Dane harleguin?
