Driving down West Harrison in Harlingen, I was amazed to see this sight at an old bakery! Did you know that ponytail palms bloom? Beaucarnea recurvata, a native of Mexico, is a water-wise, easy care, specimen plant. I have grown one in a pot since around 1982 when my mother decided it was too large to move to her new home. This plant is a great focal point for any low water garden.
