Ponytail palms (Beaucarnea recurvata) are distinctive plants that you are not likely to confuse with any other small trees in your garden. Slow growers, these palms have swollen trunk bases that taper. They are best known for their long, slender cascading leaves that are arranged in the same way as a pony’s tail.
Prefers a full sun to part shade position.
Can be kept indoors, out on patio, balcony or in the garden planted in the ground (6-8m tall x 2-3m wide when planted)
