Beaucarnea Category Page
Beaucarnea is a fun species of succulent plants
from Southern Mexico. They are characterized by a large mound shaped
trunk that gets fat above ground and topped with a grass-like canopy.
The most common species, Beaucarnea
recurvata, has a very round caudex that can grow to two meters wide.
The trunk supporting the green canopy is narrow and can grow to ten
feet tall. A more uncommon species Beaucarnea
gracilis grows a fat wide trunk from top to bottom and may have several
thick branches, each with it's own green canopy. We grow Beaucarnea
outside here in Las Vegas, where we regular see high twenties in
December and January. However, they will get damaged in a deep freeze.
