Other Common Names

Nolina Recurvata, Elephant’s Foot Palm

An Easy to Grow  Accent Palm

Also known as the Ponytail Palm, the Beaucarnea Recurvata is generally used as a houseplant, though it can also be used for landscaping in outdoor areas. It’s very particular in the zones that it thrives in, doing best in zones 10 and 11. The Ponytail Palm is native to southeastern Mexico.

This Beaucarnea Recurvata is a highly drought resistant plant that does well in full sun, growing very slowly no matter how much water or support it’s given. The Ponytail Palm is also known as “Elephant’s Foot”, due to the trunk resembling that of an elephant’s foot with a wider base and a narrowed trunk as it gets taller. The Ponytail Palm is actually not a palm at all and is considered a succulent because it’s trunk holds water.

You’ll find tufts of leaves growing off this tree with ends that may sometimes look like hair, hence the name “Ponytail”. The Ponytail Palm makes a great house or patio plant and can be kept in a container. With 10 different species out there, this tree doesn’t do well with extreme cold temperatures and must be kept brought indoor during those times. It also requires all of its roots to stay intact if you decide to replant or move it anywhere else.
