Description How to Grow Delivery
This intriguing tree-like perennial stores water in its bulbous trunk, allowing it to be extremely drought tolerant. The woody stem rises upwards, topped with a dense mop of slender, evergreen leaves that arch downwards. Mature specimens make a fine addition to a heated conservatory where temperatures remain above 5C (41F). Occasionally a well-grown plant will even produce a spray or two of small white flowers in summer. It enjoys a bright sunny spot, and smaller specimens will thrive on a bright windowsill. Height: 1.5m (59"). Spread: 1m (39").

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.
