Fouquieria columnaris, much better known under its old name Idria columnaris, is a tall pachycaul tree looking like a great upturned carrot with scraggly little secondary branches heightening the illusion with their resemblance to rootlets, and is one of the most unusual plants in the world. This tree grows up to 20 m tall. The tallest known plant was estimated to be 26.37 m. Vernacular names: "Cirio". "Boojum Tree".

We recommend planting in our Desert Dirt™ House Blend

Ensure the plant has a pot that allows for drainage and beware of pots which are sold without drainage holes as these are important for the health of your plant.

Plants will be shipped over periods of relative 'good' weather to minimise risk of damage in transit. Any foreseen delays to shipping and we will contact you. Plant will be sent bare-root to minimise damage to roots and leaves during transit.
