This small tree is surprisingly shaped. It grows with spreading stems, with small ovate leaves, just like some Didieraceae from Madagascar. Flowers are large and weird, bat pollinated. It is a relative of the common Calabash Tree, adapted to harsh coastal conditions. It can grow outdoors in the warmer Mediterranean. Very uncommon in collections.

We offer a 2-3 years old seedling.
