Magnificent exeplar of large caudiciform plant, T. paniculatus is known as Butter tree, or Butterboom. Its bright green leaves grow in small but graceful groups at the apex of its short branches. During drought periods the leaves fall to allow the plant to preserve as much water as possible. The stem is very ramified and massive; during the growth it gets shades ranging from yellowish to olive green, with a yellowish bark streaked by the evident signs of the fall of the leaves. Its beautiful bell-shaped flowers, orange or red, grow at the top of the plant during the beginning of summer and will create a wonderful chromatic contrast with the succulent and with your environments!
