Bit strange, but often photoed.

   This member of the Bombacaceae* family was given this name by Joseph Marie Henry Alfred Perrier de la Bāthie in 1953. It is found around Bay al Antsiranana and Antsahampano in northern Madagascar, growing in a well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The stem can grow to two metres and the giant succulent can reach a height of 25 metres. The flowers are white.

*This family might been incorporated in the Malvaceae family now. Sub-family: Bombacoideae, tribe: Adansonieae.
