It is a rare succulent plant of a caudiciform shape. Its light gray trunk is covered with thorns, as well as with lanceolate leaves, sprouting from the apex. The foliage is dark green with a central strip of a creamy white color, the lower surface takes on purple shades. As P. cactipes grows, it tends to branch out, producing numerous short but thick branches. In winter, its canary yellow flowers bloom. In the period of vegetative rest it loses its leaves to grow them back, when it is in vegetation. This wonderful "Madagascar Palm" is ideal for adding a tropical touch to your gardens.
