PONYTAIL    PALM

     The Ponytail Palm, Beaucarnea Recurvata, is not really a palm.  A member of the Liliaceae family and a native of Mexico, the Ponytail has a large swollen base and a rough texture that gave it it's nickname of  elephant's foot.  A native of the desert region, the trunk acts as a water reservoir.  The plant has upright flowing leaves that curves gracefully but may have a cutting edge.  This plant can be grown in full sun in Florida or inside as a high light interior plant.   The Ponytail can be as tall as 15' and when it blooms the flower spike on a very old plant is interesting.
