Pony Tail Palm

Beaucarnea recurvata

Family: Asparagaceae

May be included in the genus Nolina in some texts.

Sometimes also called Ponytail "Palm" but not really a palm. It does have a somewhat palm-like appearence. The base of the trunk swells dramatically as the plant grows, so bear this in mind when selecting a site.

More to come in future updates.
