 Beaucarnea recurvata, Nolina recurvata
Family: Asparagaceae   (Formerly:Dracaenaceae / Liliaceae / Agavaceae)
Subfamily: Nolinoideae
Ponytail Palm, Pony Tail, Bottle Palm, Nolina, Elephant-foot Tree
Origin: Mexican highlands, Florida
CaudexCan be used for bonsaiSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunDry conditionsPalm or palm-like

Palm-like plant. Succulent. The greatly swollen trunk base and the recurving, narrow leaves are certain identification. With age, the trunk eventually develops a few branches. Ponytail can get up to 30' tall, and the base up to 12' across, but houseplants generally remain less than 6 or 8' tall. The plant looks a little like a palm, and a little like a big onion sitting on the ground with a single stalk growing up and sporting a parasol of drooping, strap-like leaves.Plants are dioecious, meaning only female plants will produce seed.

Ponytail makes a large and handsome houseplant, doing well even in rooms with air conditioning as long as it has bright light. It's a good specimen plant for a rock garden in a dry, warm climate.

Bismarckia nobilis, Medemia nobilis, Bismarck Palm

Click to see full-size image Bismarckia nobilis, Medemia nobilis
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Bismarck Palm
Origin: Madagascar
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterOrnamental foliagePalm or palm-likeSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Drought and salt resistant. Avoid damaging lower trunk and roots. The two forms of this palm, blue/silver and green, differ in color and purportedly also in environmental preference/tolerance. The green form seems to do better along the coastal areas of southern California (cooler climate) and the blue form takes the inland heat better. Very few of the green form are planted in south Florida, perhaps because of their inability to withstand heat, or perhaps because the blue form is so much more stunning.

Brahea armata, Erythea armata, Erythea glauca, Erythea roezlii, Blu Fan Palm, Blue Hesper Palm

Click to see full-size image Brahea armata, Erythea armata, Erythea glauca, Erythea roezlii
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Blu Fan Palm, Blue Hesper Palm
Origin: California, Mexico
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterPalm or palm-likeSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The famous hardy blue palm. Stiff, fan shaped leaves of a stunning pale blue color. Conservatory, or sunny spot in the garden. Rather slow growing, this palm can take quite heavy frosts when mature. However, we recommend that it be given some protection when young. Well drained soil, plenty of water in summer, rather drier in winter, when it can stand -14F or so when larger. It is much happier, and faster growing when planted in the ground. To around 10 feet. Brahea armata likes quite alkaline conditions and may grow faster if lime is added to the soil.
