Species in the genus Alluaudia of plants

Alluaudia procera - Madagascar ocotillo or Alluaudia, is a deciduous succulent plant species of the family Didiereaceae. It is native to Madagascar. Although strikingly similar in appearance, it is not closely related to the ocotillo. Young alluaudias form a tangle of stems that last for several years after which a strong central stem develops. The basel stems then die out leaving a tree-like stem that branches higher up on the main trunk.
