Beaucarnea guatemalensis/Red Ponytail Palm PB5 - Trees
Please be aware Aramax are experiencing significant delays in freight in and around Auckland. We will not send any fragile plants in and around Auckland (unless you tell us too, at your own risk! ), until it is safe to do so. You can still order so you can garauntee plant supply, but please understand there are delays in getting plants to you safely. Freight out of Auckland, Waiheke Island and the South Island are still experiencing significant delays. We are working hard with a limited workforce under strict conditions which is also causing a delay in getting orders to you. We thank you for your patience and investing in upcycled and pre-loved plants, healthier for the environment and healthier for you! :-)
The Red Ponytail Palm is a very unique looking tree. It features a very large, wrinkled, swollen base, and very thin, long, 3cm wide by 60cm long, dark green grass-like leaves emerging from the top of the trunk. The swollen trunk stores water, which means that it doesn't need to be watered often. The leaves emerge bright red and turn to green as they mature. The edges of the leaves are slightly rough.
The small creamy white flowers are produced only on older trees, in mid-summer. Although they are small, they come in large quantities and form a showy display.
