Pachypodium lamerii 'Curlycrest'
Pachypodium rosulatum gracilius 'Curlycrest'These types of Pachypodiums are variations and not species of themselves. The lamerii is the most common in cultivation. The rosulatum gracilius is just as stunning and a little less common. Geayi curly crests exist but are rare. The nature of crested variations is to start growing in a fan shape and to curl into a wavy form as it matures. The leaves are generally much smaller than the type but retain the same characteristics otherwise. It is unknown whether the crested variations will produce flowers. These specimens are grafted to the trunk of a Pachypodium Geayi.
