Neutral palmbob On Dec 23, 2003, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

This is a succulent tree that looks similar to Beaucarnia recurvata, but with less branching, and wider, bluer, flatter, droopier and longer leaves than Beaucarnia. It makes an excellent landscape plant with its unique droopy leaf look. It's a native of Mexico (near Oaxaca).
