Center of cactus      Cactus in frog pot

Frog-shaped potTopping this tall, spiny succulent is an elegant spray of slender green leaves. This gem rests happily in its frog-shaped pot, which brings a smile to everyone's face.

Our friend Jan, the Belgian cactus lover, recently told us this elegant plant is a Pachapodium lamerei, or Madagascar palm. They can grow into huge trees and produce beautiful white flowers. We can't wait!
