Beaucarnea recurvata

The Beaucarnea recurvata or "Ponytail" Palm is not a palm at all. It is native to Mexico and part of the Agave family. It makes a nice addition to any palm landscape with its flowing and drooping green foliage. The most unique characteristic is its swollen trunk base. The thickening trunk serves as a water reservoir against dry spells. Does well indoors or out, low light or high, wet or dry
