Ponytail Palm | 8″ Contemporary Ceramic Pot
The ponytail palm in an 8″ contemporary ceramic pot has a deceptive name because it is actually not closely related to true palms and is, in fact, part of the succulent family. It’s scientific name, Beaucarnea recurvata, honors the man who first collected flowers from the plant, Jean-Baptiste Beaucarne, and also refers to its curved leaves. The shape of this tree is quite unique, starting with the bulge of the trunk at the bottom, for collecting water, and on up the thin trunk to the ‘bent-over’ leaves that spring out of the center much like a ponytail. The size is perfect for a tabletop or patio setting.
