Beaucarnea is an evergreen flowering perennial. The plant resembles a palm. It is a slow-growing plant with a green rosette of recurved, pendulous leaves rising from its swollen trunk. It has a greatly expanded base and a single trunk with a rosette of long, strap-like leaves. With age, the trunk eventually develops a few branches. It can grow up to 30 feet tall. It cannot resist cold temperatures, so in countries with strong winters it must be an indoor plant. The plant is also referred to as the elephant-foot tree because of the swollen shape of the base, coupled with the greyish-brown colour and the wrinkled texture of the bark. This species is often grown as a houseplant in temperate latitudes.
