The name of this genus was chosen in honor of the plant collector Karl-Werner Beisel. It includes only one species, Beiselia mexicana, discovered in the forests of Mexico around the 1980s, but the history of the genus was much more complex: initially considered part of one family, later by studying the various sections of the plant it seemed similar to several families together so much that in the end it was necessary to create a new genre just for her. In nature we are talking about a shrub that even exceeds 10 m in height, while in cultivation it is particularly appreciated for its shrubby appearance, almost comparable to a bonsai. It’s caudiciform stem acts as a water reserve to survive even during long periods of drought! Overall, Beiselia embodies exotic charm and simplicity of cultivation, a perfect match to make it a plant suitable for every environment and every grower!
