11 species of Pachypodium are found in Southern Africa & Mozambique. The
largest, P. Namaquanum (Half-mense = Half-human), is found in the
Richtersveld desert area in the extreme NW of SA. A smaller but similar
plant, P. Lamerai (Madagascan Palm), hails from Madagascar. The latter
have become very popular with gardeners in the past few years, growing
easily from seed. We have propagated more than enough!
This is a late afternoon shot of a 3 year old plant in our garden:
K5 and FA 100/2.8 Macro @ f4, 1/500sec, ISO 200.
