Pachypodium densiflorum


This succulent shrublet has a swollen stem that can grow up to 2 m in diameter. It carries many short and upright, spiny branches. The flowers are yellow or sometimes tinted deep yellow and orange and appear in spring. The leaves are elliptic, dark green above and paler below. The plants grow in southern, central and northern Madagascar on granite outcrops at altitudes of ± 1 500 m. This variety is distinguished from var. brevicalyx by the shorter calyx of the latter. The corolla opens out almost flat, with a saucer-like depression in the centre in a deeper yellow than in P. rosulatum.
