Popular name: Ponytail palm
Scientific name: Beaucarnea recurvata
The ponytail palm is a shrub that can reach up to 5 meters high, of semi-woody texture and sculptural aspect. Although it is similar to a palm tree, it belongs to another botanic family.
Native to the desert regions of Texas (USA) and Mexico, the ponytail palm retains a lot of water in its spongy inside. Due to its slow growth and curious format, it is also very used to decorate inside spaces, yards, and porches.
