Beaucarnea recurvata - ponytail palm
DESCRIPTION: Low maintenance robust ornamental plant with long slender green leaves which emerge in a fountain tuft from a single or branched trunk. The trunk often has a bulging base when mature, hence the alternative common name of elephant foot palm.
USE IN: Accent and specimen planting, landscaping and poolside, also suited to containers. Ideal for indoor planting, landscaping, office planting. Will survive some neglect.
PLANTING: Plant in full sun, or the brightest light possible indoors, in well drained soil. Very happy in dry almost desert locations but will grow very happily in humid gardens if soil is sandy and free-draining. Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Hardy plant, tolerates heat and dry conditions once established. Prefers dry conditions during winter.
CARE: Pull off old foliage for a tidy trunk and fertilise yearly using a slow release fertiliser. Repot container plants annually, or replace the compost if this is not possible. . Tolerates neglect but is an impressive feature plant when cared for.
HEIGHT & WIDTH:  to 10m H x 3 m W outside, much smaller indoors in containers.
PLEASE NOTE: These are tube-stock plants, with the benefit of being a young plant they will establish quickly in your garden. The average size of your plants will be 15 -25 cm in height including the pot height of 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
