Ponytail Palms look unlike any other palm tree, in fact, they aren’t palms at all. These interesting looking trees are feature plants in the lily family and they can add a lot of tropical flair to any landscape. They’re also known by their botanical name, Beaucarnea recurvata and these Mexican natives feature bright green, strap-like, feather plume leaves and a swollen-base that sets it apart from any other plant you’re likely to encounter. If you want to add instant curb appeal and interest, you’ll want to plant this Ponytail Palm! People love to have them planted near walkways and entries, where they are sure to get the attention of anyone that passes by. Transform any blank wall planting them alone or in clusters. They can grow to be medium sized, though they do grow slowly, so smaller ones also make excellent indoor houseplants!

A Ponytail Palm is extremely hardy and easy to care for. Once established, they are drought tolerant with low to moderate water use required to keep them thriving all year long. When grown outdoors, they love to grow in a spot that gets plenty of full sun exposure. We like to plant them at the base of taller palms or as a single specimen in a small yard. And if you plan to use them as an indoor houseplant, place your Ponytail Palm in a well-lit room and enjoy the happy presence they can bring to any home.

Anyone looking for a stunning and visually interesting plant for the home or landscape will love the Ponytail Palm. Come visit any of our nurseries and our pro’s will be happy to help you select the perfect tree for the perfect spot in your yard!
