The Q&A Archives: pony tail palm

Question: I have a pony tail palm tree for 15 yrs and this is the first time I see something sprouting from the top of it, can you tell me what this is

Answer: Your ponytail palm has reached adulthood! When grown as an outdoor garden plant, it produces a flower stalk that can be 16 feet or more in height. This contains clusters of small beige or yellowish blooms. These normally open during the summer months. Because the male and female blossoms are on separate plants, a single plant will likely not produce seeds. Enjoy your garden!
