Pachypodium lameri
Pachypodium lameri
Unlike the small P. brevicaule, some Pachypodiums, such as P. lameri can grow to a large size though nothing like the 8m (26 feet) that they can reach in habitat. These larger species grow quite happily in cultivation providing they are given extra heat during the winter.
