Pachypodium rutenbergianum

Beautiful exemplar of succulent caudiciform with very slow growth that can reach in nature even the 15 m of height. Its trunk has a shape similar to a bottle, with a greyish green bark in which the scars of the fallen leaves have remained. From the trunk depart its branches, equipped with robust and short thorns arranged in pairs; while the leaves have an elongated and pointed shape with a glossy surface of intense green color. Overall the plant with its ramifications looks like a candlestick. During the flowering period, April-August, this succulent gives beautiful flowers that reach even 15 cm in length; white with serrated margins and yellow shades in the central part. The inflorescences bloom at the apex of the branches and have a pleasant scent.
