This species is deciduous, so our plants will be leafless in Winter and part of Spring. Most plants are taller than the 1m limit of the postal box, so we will need to bend or prune the upper part. Young Baobabs are very resistant to pruning and will grow new main shoots soon.

This one was grown from seeds collected in Senegal.
