The Madagascar Almond is a native of Madagascar, a land thriving with unique species of flora and fauna. The tree grows straight up and forms distinct canopies or layers of leaves that look like umbrellas. In each layer, the branches form almost parallel to the ground and branches in almost harmonic vein like patterns and ends up with small clusters of green leaves that are 4-9 in a cluster. The variegated (or tri-color) variety has beautiful green white leaves. These clusters of leaves spread out evenly to form the canopy. Due to the small green leaves, the Madagascar Almond is also suitable for Bonsai.
