The Beaucarnea is a unique plant that looks it is one happy family, father, mother and child. It is fantastic to look at and easy to care for.
The name is a combination of Beau (beautiful) and carneia, an Ancient Greek harvest festival that’s celebrated under various names throughout Europe. Although many will think the Beaucarnea is a palm, it is actually part of the aspargus family.
It is a good find for those who love unique pieces in their homes.
